Dream drive...yes indeed.
Previous Peking To Paris Rally edition in 2010 passed through Kazakhstan. This year it won't :(
What's the Chinese sentiment in Peking being called Beijing now? From what I understand they never liked Peking.Don't they get peeved that the rally is still called Peking - Paris?
@Sanchez: Do you know why they skipped KZ this time?
@F1O: I don't think any Chinese people care now, they're too busy making money.Peking was just an old way of spelling Beijing. But it does sound old fashioned. Like calling Taiwan "Formosa".
I guess some safety concerns though not sure.You've got serious comments boost after "Why I Blog", haven't you?!
@Sanchez: Everybody has something to say now.
Did little homework.
