Could the JaYoe World Tour be dealt another deathblow?  I took the 20kgs I was able to isolate off my load back to Ningbo, hoping this would be the solution to help me overcome this problem with my knee… but unfortunately the doctor saw something that cannot simply be fixed by a reduction or weight, and needs some real time off the road.  So Ryan and I put our heads together and decided to be as productive as possible with enforced down time.

Check out some of the places and things we referenced in this article:

Ningxia Night Market:
What is the Tiger Duck:
Check out our Hostel (Meander Hotel)
XiMen Walking Street:

    Yes, I think you made the right decision to continue with your trip, even without the bike. It’s part of your journey and how you deal with the ups and downs of your travels. Really liking the two of you on this trip. Ryan adds that little extra that makes the podcasts and posts that much more interesting. JaYoe!

  • I knew the first pod cast that the videos would be very slow coming, after you found how much easier it is to sit behind a mic…! But that’s OK, cause I know I still like you guys, and enjoy the soap opera of Ja Yoe, and as the tadpole trike wheel turns…! Well I am glad to hear that your knee is feeling better as long as you are resting it, and not pedaling the trike around,with the over burdened Aido trailer… I can say one thing as I have heard on this podcast, you are really into your toys, and not that it is a bad thing because I am also a gadget toy junkie as well, But now we can hopefully get some video out of you guys, while out at play in Taiwan, which is a very cool place, and bin there for some of my companies business, can’t go into detail because it was corresponding to a government contract and all though I am retired I did sign a security nondisclosure formality with the company, But back to the important things, I just want to say, that I enjoyed the pic’s from the town, or village that you stopped in, and the pictures are really awesome, as I like those popping colors that you managed to capture, with your EOS 5D Mark III, a camera in which I’m very familiar with, and I hope to see a lot more as that is a very good piece of techknowledgey, that you are using, and there is no excuses for not getting the right shot…! Matthew…! And I’m sure Ryan knows how to look through a viewfinder, even if need be set on auto, as I do not know Ryan’s skills or skill set …! Sorry Ryan…! I did not mean to be offencive by saying that, But still pic’s guys…! No reason that you should not have any pic’s, because I know if I had your ability to be there I would be going camera crazy… Sorry I have to say the truth…! But have fun enjoy the weather as it is lovely there this time of year… Safe travels and stay away from the stinky Tofu as when you eat it it somehow permeates through your system comes out through your sweat making you one funky person…! LoL…! But Ja Yoe….!

    Your friend the Armadillo man , Armadillozack…!
