Check out the pictures, the first two were taken on my way to the, the last two, well, they speak for themselves.. The yak was more scared than I was..
Now, I'm in short supply of challenges. I'll be in China soon, so if you want to send a challenge, be quick to think one up!
Russia: Jeroen came up with the brilliant idea to send me to the red square in Moscow with the self-inflatable mattress i got from my dear colleagues, and have my picture taken lounging on my mattress wearing a Russian hat. Beat that!
Mongolia: Erik requests a picture of me on a yak! I am more than happy to get this task replaced by a less challenging one!
South-Korea: Ton knows how much I love soccer (read the sarcastic tone in this line please) so he wants me to play with a soccer ball wearing a PSV shirt of Ji-Sung Park!!! Alright, I guess I will need help here..
Thailand: Edwin wants me to toast on him while watching sunset on a beach on the western part of Thailand. Must admit this reflects Edwin's romantic character.
Laos: Well, Nancy changed her mind on her challenge, and the little tease she is, she wants me to take a picture of a big spider in its web.. from up close. Yikes! She knows spiders scare the hell out of me, so even though this may not seem to be very challenging to some of you, it does to me! Somehow I hope I will skip Laos on my journey, that would be a nice excuse..
Cambodia: What can a person do in Cambodia? Ever wondered? Well, of course you can rent a bike and drive around, trying to avoid the thousands of land mines, which is a challenge in itself. But there are far cooler things to rent there.. So, Vincent wants me to rent.... a bazooka.. A BAZOOKA!!! and shoot a cow.. OK, I can see the grin on your faces. I'm NOT going to shoot a cow, though that might provide a nice evening meal, but I will shoot a mosquito or two with a bazooka!!
Thailand: Somehow Thailand is quite popular with you guys, or is it easy to come up with ideas for Thailand? Whatever the reason, I planned to go to Thailand twice, so I might as well take on two challenges. Ok, to be honest, I don't want to discard Edwins challenge, and really love Wibo's, so my double visit to Thailand is just an excuse. Wibo wants me to go to a full moon party in Thailand and request an album track from the DJ.. which one? The Promised Land by Joe Smooth. Music is our (Wibo's and mine) common interest, so this is not only a fun challenge to me, it is also a reflection of our friendship. Thanks, Wibo.
Indonesia: Chantal is partly Indonesian by origin, so her request is to have me find a person with her family name, Snackey, and take a picture of this person, who might be a relative!! I am curious how difficult or easy this task will be..
