Recently I learned a story that Du Fenyan has spent nearly two years riding through 22 countries across most of Africa and parts of Asia,When I hear this story , I am impressed with his courage and his faith.Pursing a dream is not easy , when you have it planted inside your heart and make it come ture, it is a triumph and ecstasy .He was the first kung fu guy to ride a bike across two continents.For three years before embarking on his African journey in August 2011, the young rider learned one of the three main Chinese martial arts of the Wudang school.The biggest impression Africa made on Du was that China was everywhere, from road construction sites to installing electrical equipment to daily necessities. Most Africans.In Sudan and Ethiopia, people called Du "China. To his surprise, they called all foreigners "China" because the Chinese workers helping them build roads and infrastructure projects were the only foreigners they had ever met.Du's two-month stay in Ethiopia was the longest of his journey. He says in Ethiopia he went anywhere there was a road. He even learned the local language. People there told him that China had helped them a great deal in building infrastructure, whereas some countries just want to take the country's resources without giving anything back.And if Du had a problem or needed somewhere to sleep in an African city, he could easily turn for help to Chinese people working there.The two-year journey cost Du about 40,000 yuan ($6,560). This included four flights and buying a camera. About 10,000 yuan came from donations from people he met on his journey.One man he met in Djibouti gave him $400 and bought him several meals because, he said, people had done similar things for him when he was riding a bike through Europe, there is always the possibility that he will make another cycling journey one day.This risk is worthy and a magic to make a difference in life.
