"Not For All the Tea in China" by Chris Burrows is published

Entertaining autobiography of a well-seasoned traveler

About the Author:


Chris Burrows was born in 1947 to a mother from Barnsley and a father from Essex. He has three great loves in his eventful life: Barnsley FC, Yorkshire County Cricket Club and his wonderful wife. His wife is his rock; Yorkshire CCC is his summertime passion; the Super Reds break his heart year after year- but he wouldn't swap them for any other team in the world.

Excerpt from the book:

"Well, all fire doors should not be locked, but since we're in China it's a very fair bet that this fire door will be locked."  And we got there and somebody pushed it and thank goodness it wasn't locked, but it let us out onto the fire exit which was a series of staircases going all the way down to the ground; stone staircases with a green painted bannister to guide you.  And on each floor as you went down, in green, was the number of the floor.  Well, I, with my poor heart and what have you, was not too sure whether I could manage this.

We thankfully were going down and not up and we began to go down and down and we put handkerchiefs over our mouths to keep out this awful smelling smoke.  And we went down and down and down and eventually we got down to – and I could see it – just – the number 8 and I felt that that was it for me.  I just felt that I couldn't go any further.  And I remember saying to…  I don't know where the Dutch people were, but they'd gone.  They'd disappeared.  Whether they'd gone quicker than us, I don't know.  I presume they must have done.  And I just said to the two people who were with me, "You go on lads because I'm not going to get out of this.  I will not get out of this."  And they were most encouraging and said, "Come on, come on, get up, get up, get up.  You must.  You must try.  Get up."
