It's all Michael Palin's fault! by nihaoxiongmao on 20 February 2012 2:04pm
 
I've quit my job to go travelling around Central and South America, and it's all Michael Palin's fault. I watched far too many of his shows as a kid!

I'm also taking part in the world's biggest hop to celebrate the release of Ripping Yarns on DVD. Once again MP has got me!

I'm hopeful that MacDonalds might arrange a transfer for you to Guatemala.

Thanks very much guys.

I've been getting some basic vocabulary together and have some Mp3's to go through before I start some lessons.

Hope to attend the Hopathon event as a spectator (if they allow spectators, that is!)
