Chinese Traditional Medicine Collaboration Forum, Sydney
This event came to Sydney over the weekend. I think it was a trade based Chinese Government effort. There was a day of lectures in the forum and some trade stalls of Chinese medicine: lozenges mostly! It was interesting to take in some of the info and it was good to see some familiar faces. Apparently this is the first one of its kind and shows a more deepening interest in Chinese medicine in Australia. It was a good effort I thought with maybe 50 people turning up. Some social phenomena that happened: 6 or 10 people taking in your face pics of lecturers then of the audience, people snoring loudly, triple headed sparkly purple flowers on lecturers lapels, running translation of Chinese after English and no one manning trade stalls. Also a Tibetan monk turned up, see pics, which I thought was very nice.
