The untold spy story of WWI

In 1910 a proposed Alliance between Germany and France (See New York Times Article ) worried Britain so they sent someone to 'sniff around'.

The story is a personal journey of discovery set in the vibrant energy that is Zanzibar. Susan finds herself in the palace of the great Sultan of Zanzibar as private tutor to his children. She immerses herself in the heady experiences of that rich island. From making friends with her personal servant, Subira, to falling in love with Asim, a senior member of the Sultan's court. Susan delights in the discovery of Zanzibar and the discovery of herself. The only shadow being that she was recruited by British Military Intelligence as a spy. That compromises her love for Asim and will eventually cut the silken thread that is her journey into the exotic.

"The secret of Chinese Characters"


Hànzì xiǎo gùshì


地 dì (earth, ground, field, land) - de ( -ly / structural particle: used before a verb or adjective, linking it to preceding modifying adverbial adjunct )  is composed of tǔ (earth) and yě (vagina). Land is made up of earth/soil. Land also gives birth to living things and functions like a vagina. That is why the ancient Chinese always used mother or female to describe the land.
