  1. Zhang Qian. China’s Marco Polo, long before Marco Polo (& w/seemingly more believable & accurate accounts & info pertaining to his incredible multicultural journey than is seen from Europe’s most legendary traveler). What I wouldn’t give just to sit down w/him over a couple cold glasses of brewski 🍺 & just listen to him speak, in his own voice, about his amazing life filled w/amazing tales of his amazing journeys to amazing places w/amazing cultures & all the amazing dealings he had w/all the amazing peoples he met throughout his amazing experience. And I don’t even speak any Chinese or drink any alcoholic beverages!
