Nothing of an adventurer, journalist and editor Valerie de Gaulejac has experimented a lot to try to mix in this blog-webbsite. She squeezed her brain studying Chinese, Korean and Thai languages. With new new linguistic skills, she has negotiated, chatted, interviewed, eaten in markets, trains, touk-touk, taxis, factories, with neighbours, administrations, landlords and angry dogs. For a short but memorable time, she practiced traditional martial arts in Korea. However, after she successfully hand crushed her first brick, she turned to yoga. In yoga, flexibility is not the issue. An unusual source of inspiration for those who need a good writer or translator.
