I’m going on tour because: It’s the best excuse to go globe trotting in exotic places, and after 5 months of no unicycling, I will need to get back in the saddle.
People don’t know this about me: My shoulder is now tied together with a (very expensive) rope.
The thing I’m most keen on doing in China is… eating the chinese delicacy, fried Zhàměng.
Ni hui jiang jongwen ma? It’s crash course time. Right now: none. Come August: fluent (I can hope… that I can ask where the toilets are).
How many push-ups do you do before bedtime? None, under doctors order.
