Travels Through Dali: With A Leg of Ham
Friday, February 22nd | 4:00pm
Mei Zhang Author and Founder of Wild China
Mei Zhang is a native of Yunnan province in southwest China. She holds an MBA from Harvard Business School and worked for McKinsey & Company until she found her true passion in sustainable travel. While serving as a consultant to The Nature Conservancy, Mei witnessed the push and pull between economic development and conservation of both nature and culture in Yunnan. She strongly believed that there was a for-profit solution to this – providing sophisticated interpretation of Chinese culture and nature through experiential travel. In her book, Travels Through Dali: With A Leg of Ham, Mei returns to her childhood home and journeys through the region, sharing a personal and beautifully illustrated chronicle of exactly what makes Dali so special.
