No, i don't know any of these people but it's all very beachy.
Life just always seems better at sunset.
We are more than halfway finished our trip, over the hump and heading down the other side of the hill.
We have our placed booked for Christmas and most of Russian accomodation is taken care off, thanks to my dreamy D. If it was left in my hands people, we'd be stuck in the middle of Siberia in December.
I'm getting very excited to see China, although like the large countries of australia and canada, we have had to choose carefully because of distance and time constraints. China will be more about the cities, the classic tourist places you associate with China, mostly because it's on the route.
Pricey Hong Kong, colonial shanghai, awestriking Beijing are all part of the plan.
And after four weeks of enjoying what SE Asia has to offer - exoticness, jungles, beaches - I'm looking forward to seeing another side of Asia, one that includes lots of busyness, lots of museums, lots of chinese food and lots of people.
Then, I'll be quite ready to sit in solitude on the train across the largest country in the world, Russia.
It's so close now. We're almost there. And when we step foot in Eastern Europe, I'm not sure myself if I will believe what we did.
Thank God for pictures.
