This is Vladimir Yarets, he is a native of Minsk (Belarus) and he is 64 years old.
He is aiming at a Guinness Book world record to be the first deaf person to do a round the world trip on a motorbike.
I met him a couple of hours ago on Queen Street. I took his photo and wished him success.Godspeed Vladimir!

    You know what I found amazing in Queen street yesterday? THe new pedestrian crossing signs with the little green mans whose legs move – and the countdown to the green light for cars. Very useful I found.
    If you ever get a chance to take a (moving?) photo of that… wonder if they are anywhere else in the world. Not in Sydney yet anyway.

    Was also taken aback by the bungee jumping – had seen jumps from bridges or cranes of various heights of course, but never the springing up version starting from the ground. What a shock to witness that!
