Sharon and I enjoy listening to our MP3’s. Often when we are driving across the country and when “From our own Correspondent” gets a little dry, you will hear me say “gies a Kimbo”. This is a mixture of Scottish and Australian and naturally means Sharon please play for us a “Saturday Morning with Kim Hill” podcast.
I like Kim Hill a lot, for me she epitomises Kiwi culture, especially when she is talking about food. Anyhow one day as we were driving to Vilnius, a podcast come on about a couple of Kiwi dudes called Neville and Bruce, their friend Kingi and a car race from Peking to Paris. She read out a website http://www.pekingparis.co.nz/. I looked it up and discovered that this race is actually coming through Vilnius.
Growing up with a vintage car background, this was a touch of heaven for me, we spent a few hours moseying around, had a chat to all four Kiwi’s competing. Sharon did a interview for the ODT and hey pristo it was a good evening.
