I want to wait until all the installments are out... I hate waiting while I'm in the middle of a story.

And what a read it is too. Thanks Richard - excellent as always.

I love the tradition. Not hard to imagine that it has been traded that way for hundreds of years. Great read, and cant wait for the next instalment.

Excellent read. Paints vivid pics in my head with so few words - nice for my bad eyes.

...YUP, I anxiously await the next instalment.

Great material! Very worthwhile.

A few nice jade pictures would have been nice as well (don't mind me, I am a shameless picture beggar :D )

Where have I been?

Richard,

This was a great read!
It reminded me of some dealers I met in Shanghai and Hong Kong in the early 80's. One of them dealt in Jade as well.
It was a bit like the madeleine of Proust that brought him back in time.

Thank you.
