Going out with Rich

On February 8, 2009, Rich first commented on my blog. It was about a Peugeot 604 that I spotted and photographed with my Motorola Razr.

We met for lunch soon thereafter and the rest is history. Yesterday, we went out to lunch to celebrate ten years of friendship, in his Honda Beat!

And here's a retrospective of co-piloting with Rich during all those Anti-Football Runs on January 1.

2011(?): Modified BMW E9

2013: M5

2014: 1981 Honda Accord

2015: 1988 Porsche 911

Thanks, man!

Documentary on driving in Papua New Guinea

This series is amazing. I've watched PNG, Congo, and Philippines already today.

Let's see what's going on in Hong Kong
