The Amazing Journey of Chen Guanming

 Photo copied from this location.

This story, I believe, is truly inspiring on many levels. That's Chen Guanming pictured above, who says that he has traveled more than 60,000km/40,000miles in the past 2 years--traversing 16 countries--from his homeland China to London to see the Olympics...and doing it all on his large cargo trike. What's more, he's in his late fifties. I wonder if he and Heinz Stücke met each other in passing along the way. To read a couple brief stories about him click here or here, and the below video is interesting as well.
