Spencer is famous for two reasons - he's married to our Eleanor and his family has an honoured place in Chinese society. We all knew about his fantastic skills as an artist but at our meeting we learned that his family's history is woven into the fabric of China. The family home (palace?) is mind-boggling. We held our meeting outside the cafe (for reasons best left unspoken) and so Spencer had to talk under quite difficult circumstances. Hopefully he will return to tell us more.
