This time I am going to take you on a special journey in China. Since most of you know about China’s big cities, ancient towns and villages, temples, mountains, the Great Wall, great history, tea, meditation, amazing architecture, gardens, martial arts, culture and cuisine, it is time for something different and alternative. China is home to 55 ethnic minorities, some of which are pretty small and count only a few million members or as few as five thousand. So I have chosen three very interesting and unusual ethnic groups about which people rarely hear and which have very distinctive ways of living. Also I will identify their indigenous regions or towns so you can visit them as they offer a unique cultural experience.

A fairly easy administrative job becomes a lot harder when you have to deal with people who come from various walks of life, and that is why my office is open to the public six out of the eight hours that we work each day. If you serve the public in every sense of that word, then stress seems almost inevitable, unless you formulate a clear set of rules to which you must strictly adhere. Based on my experience, here are some of the guidelines that can help you to achieve a stress-free working day.
