How China views its recent South Pacific excursions - in its own words.
I'm back!

Hi everyone - thanks for your forbearance yesterday.

For some time now I've been troubled by an escalating and fairly serious group of health issues.

I'd been coping here in Indonesia, but it's reached the point where I'll need to return to Australia to get things properly attended to.

The issues are serious but the prognosis is good.

Yesterday I had a bit of a boilover and wasn't able to bring you anything on the website.

I'd like to take another clear day today too.

So back with you tomorrow, Thursday.
