Day 4 Dayang to Wuhu
Today we were riding through many industrial areas which was chaotic in regards to traffic and road conditions. Camping today was out of the question, we required a shower after our 4x4 expedition.
I am starting to question who is the teacher and who is the student...Ho Young has been correcting and teaching me Chinese on a daily basis. On average I get lit up with 20' "tingbudongs" per day which means I hear you but I don't understand. We started having daily quizzes to review his teachings.
Today we didn't go through too many communities; however, we went through a very remote area close to the city of Dantu to drop off some gear and promote our vision. Sport and play represents many attributes that transfer to other facets our life, which in turn makes us better people. It is our goal that people can experience personal growth through sport and play. It has been a pleasure to share this gift with the people we have met thus far. Next stop Hefei!
We have met so many great Mamas along the way. We wish she could have come with us, she made the best Nuro Lamian.
Wild Bill served us some nice cold drinks outside of Dantu.

Great to see that the spirit of the ride is not diminishing yet. I think this was an important day to test your mettle as a team. Now that the initial energy has had a chance to dissipate, it is great to see that the core strength of the 2 team members remains resolute. You will need this camaraderie to see you through the low points ahead. Remember to use each other's strength at those times to lift each other up. The smiling faces in the photos are amazing and speak loudly about the success of the message you guys are trying to spread.
