I had the privelidge of once again being able to visit a school at very short notice today. Takaro School in Palmerston North was the school, arranged by Moetatua Turoa.
I know that the students have computer class this afternoon, so I really hope some of them check the blog and see this post. If you are reading this, guys, then check out the links below. And leave lots of comments if you want!
I spoke to about 40 students about my journey around the world by bicycle and skateboard, telling them stories from the road and sharing some things I had learned about myself and life.
I told them about the following episodes in the journey:
- Cycling in -23 degrees in eastern Turkey (see the photos and story here and here).
- The border guards in Kyrgyzstan who asked for a bribe (see the story and photos here).
- The skateboard trailer (see the video here).
- The hot Gobi Desert in western China (see the photos here).
- The Tibetan Monks in China riding my skateboard (see photos and story here).
- The terrible pollution in Eastern China (story and photos here).
