Yale Club Hike to Jardine's Lookout

Good news! The Yale Club's next hike is coming up Saturday morning, November 30, as we tackle Section 2 of the Wilson Trail. We'll start 9:30am at Wong Nei Chung Gap, head to Jardine's Lookout with its magnificent views over Victoria Harbour and the Hong Kong skyline, and then continue over and down to Quarry Bay, with more magnificent scenery both north and south along the way. After lunch at Quarry Bay, everyone should be back on the MTR before 2:30pm.

It's about 3-1/2 hours on the trail, which is exposed and has steps as well as ups and downs. But starting up at Wong Nei Chung Gap minimizes the climb.

Full details are posted on the Club's website.

Hope you can join us!

Assignment China by Mike Chinoy on Wednesday, Nov 20

Mike Chinoy (YC’73), the distinguished former CNN Asia correspondent, will be screening the third of his series of fascinating films he created based on China’s recent history. This one is titled “Opening Up”. All Yale Club members are invited and Mike encourages our attendance.

It was 1979. The U.S. and China had just established diplomatic relations. For the first time since the Communists took power in 1949, the Chinese government allowed American journalists to be based in Beijing. Based on extensive interviews with virtually all the pioneering reporters who opened the first U.S. news bureaus in the PRC - the documentary also contains interviews with Chinese officials who sought to manage the Western media as well as rare archival footage, still photos and previously unseen home videos. An insightful glimpse into the early years of Deng Xiaoping's reforms and how foreign journalists understood and explained these momentous developments to the rest of the world.
