Today I reached Cambridge, the birthplace of His Majesty. I visited the square named after the King and Mt.Auburn hospital. I actually was so, so lucky to meet a lovely lady who gave me the once in a life time chance to visit the very room where the King was born. It is in the old part of the hospital on the second floor, with big windows facing on to the street. It felt amazing to stand there and is the best part of the ride. The record paled in to insignificance and I am not too worried about whether I beat it or not. What happened today was only made possible because of the support from Rawin my friend and from Boonrawd(Singha). I am sad to have missed the chance to meet some nice Thai people and members of the Kings birthplace preservation society here in Boston. It seems like the right time to also thank all the other sponsors and people out there who have helped us get this far.
The strange thing is that today we reached the halfway point of 14,500 km on day 51. I also found out that Rawin has made it possible for Noi, Simon and May to support me through Brasil. This has really lifted my spirits. Sophie, my daughter is the first one to commit to support me in Europe, with Daniel my son, close behind. but I am still looking for a volunteer driver(s).
So, I will try to reach the Canadian border tomorrow but not sure I have the legs.
Many thanks everyone.
