1. Gorp En Roovert Forest, December 2010. It’s a tough gig celebrating Christmas in the south east of China. No mince pies for me this year, zero turkey, a complete absence of crackers and Quality Street. And so it’s easy to find myself reflecting on Christmases of the past, especially when deciding on this year’s Leighton Literature post. After a little deliberation I plumped for the beautiful Gorp en Roovert Forest in Brabant Province.
