The Long Horse Ride: Interview with Megan Lewis

Megan Lewis is on an 8,000 kilometre horse ride from Beijing to London.

The culmination of the 2008 Beijing Olympics marked the start of the horse ride, which is scheduled to finish in London in 2012.

The ride is designed to carry a goodwill message from Beijing to London, as well as raise funds for disadvantaged children through the work of Schoolchildren for Children.

A while ago, I was sent a copy of The Traditional Shops & Restaurants of London, a book which celebrates the city’s rich heritage and offers a refreshing perspective of contemporary London.

She doesn’t simply applaud old business for being old; rather, she applauds those that operate their business in an old-fashioned way. In her words, they are “establishments that celebrate their history less for the tourists it may attract and more for the sheer pleasure of making and selling things in traditional ways.”

      The thumb. A very useful part of the anatomy, especially when you decide to head out into the world, hitchhike and use other modes of transportation. For Jo Magpie, it (both actually) have served her well in her travels – always heading east. She’s once again on the move. Yup, east.
