She Loved her travels to interesting places like researching at the Gorbachev Foundation and Tsinghua University in Beijing, trekking in the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan, Studying spiritual texts at the great Boudhanath stupa in Nepal and horse-riding in Annapurna, way up in the Himalayas.
Cecilia’s Sustain-Able blog has a no-nonsense take on the madness that is our politicised planet & how messed up censorship, culturally unsustainable policies are! It is okay to use a bit of “black humour” if you are actually doing something to make a difference! lol. Strangely, she got reblogged to 20million when she called someone a Red Sk8nk in 2011 (okay, somebody famous denied Tiananmen Massacre….it wasn’t randomly rude :)…it was in response to a very cruel and nasty remark by a minor Hong kong politician to the victims’ Mothers!)
