Only 1 more day to go until I fly!
First stop: China to trek the Great Wall for the Samaritans, then I'm off to Mongolia to work at Star TV – an English TV station which specialises in news and entertainment. I could find myself interviewing someone from Mongolias Got Talent or Mongolian XFactor – watch out Ant and Dec!
Then, I'm taking the world's highest train journey from Beijing to Lhasa, where I tour around this beautiful country that used to be residence to the Dalai Lama. Followed by teaching English to Buddhist monks in Nepal for a month (although I don't know how that will work as I didn't think they were allowed to speak to women!) should be interesting.
Finished by a four day tour in Bhutan, hiking to the Tiger nest monastery and a night in Mumbai, visiting the slum that starred in the film, Slumdog Millionaire.
Phew!!! It will certainly be a challenge, considering I can't speak a word of Mandarin, Mongolian, Nepalese, Tibetan or whichever language they speak in Bhutan. At least I'll be okay in India, where they speak English. Good job I'm a fast learner.
So farewell and I will be updating my blog very soon.
