The Peking to Paris Rally is a recreation of the 1907 challenge issued by Le Matin, "Is there anyone who will undertake to travel this summer from Peking to Paris by automobile?"
The 2016 version will follow a route of 13,695 Km (8,510 miles) and take 35 days. We are travelling in Rhubarb and Custard, a 1936 Buick. We know nothing about cars or rallying.

Richard saw Robert Plant at the airport - an omen perhaps? Some kind of Stairway to Heaven opening up before us? A podium place? Or just that our hotel in China is called the Shangri-La?
Nerves have now been replaced by jet lag - I think I preferred the nerves.
One problem that has emerged is that of course Google is banned in China and Blogger runs on Google. Hopefully will still be able to blog though.
