another surprising froggy rainy day..
I was drinking my hot tea repaired by soft rain, when from behind the curve...7 brilliant chinese bikers!! Well at first I thought they were enjoying a weekend trip...but...From Nanjing they're directed to Kunming. There will stop and in next february they'll leave for...LONDON!!!
THEYRE PEDALING TO LONDON yep,, ( www.bike2london.com )
I was also surprised to speak in english with two of them...after 50 days i don't speak any english language...
Another funny aspect has been that a guy of them told me that it wasn't the first time he saw a tricycle like this....well of course...he met Chris the engineer during an exhibition in Nanjing... unbelievable meet some crazy people in the middle of nowhere, knowing a common person...
wow...well this is Chris so even you now can modify your tricycle..;) ( www.mgt-engineering.com )
Wished a safe trip, we said goodbye..
After 3 km I stopped in this little town, looking for an hot shower in a small motel..
When I was downloading my daily videos...the chinese guy working downstairs at the restaurant,,knocked at my door...he was so excited...that say just...."laowai laowai laowai"...pointing the small restaurant....and giving me a funny english written business card; behind the wishes of a safe trip to me... well I was super excited and in a minute I was downstair to meet this great couple of travelers, and also the first not chinese people I've met till now..!!!
THEY'RE COMING FROM ENGLAND !!!! and their trip is going to Laos, Malesia...in a not finish list ending with north America...

Also with them I had no words to say, I was excited listening their trips and about their lives..!
The funny thing told me was.."well in Russia local people say to be careful about Mongolian, in Mongolia they say to be careful to chinese persons, in China they say to be careful to people from Laos...They confirmed to have met just good people giving them every kind of warm welcome...
an other funny aspect? they're guide (cause if you drive a camper in China you need a local guide) is a beautiful Xinjianese girl!
I mean,,I should need a Xinjianese guide too, to indicate some other person close to me when all people around call me Xinjianese..!!! :)
Well,,,i have nothing else to add, i'm still excited of this movie-dream-trip!!!
