In the last 3 weeks I have "travelled" :
Once each to:
An undetermined Asian country (akin to a mystery flight?)
And … four times to the Sudan!
I have had a smelly trip to another undetermined country, where I tried not to open my mouth, and I've ridden with one grumpy American who did not want to drive the way I wanted to go!
I have learnt about the killing fields of Cambodia, the civil war of Sierra Leone and the "unrest" in Sudan.
I have learnt about prayer beads and the special significance of some of the beads on the string. I have been allowed to hold a set of beads made of hand-made wooden beads (beautiful).
I have learnt that many Swiss are now buying property in Cambodia and Sudan is "full" of Chinese. I have learnt that Bollywood movies are huge in Arabic countries.
I have learnt that no matter where my drivers have come from they share the same distaste for American food (with the possible exception of the grumpy American driver).
I have learnt that every one thinks Sydney is the capital of Australia.
Four weeks to go ………..
