I was recently being interviewed for the rather excellent Travel Tape podcast by Robert Kelly about my book on China’s ghost cities. As our conversation rolled on it became apparent that the person I was talking to had a rather uncommon experience as far as how he’s been able to engage China.

Robert Kelly is the coauthor of Lonely Planet’s China guidebook. Every two years he travels back to all of the places he and the other authors previously visited, logs the changes, cuts out the old, and adds the new. If there is anybody who really understands how fast China changes year to year, it’s him. So I decided to turn the tables on him and extended an invitation to be a guest for an interview on Vagabond Journey’s YouTube channel.
