r-g.com: The weather and roads were pretty bad these days,

: I already have a small experience on driving, made like

Ban: I like playing Ping-Pong (table tennis)...
r-g.com:Are you going to China, also?...

to play. In fact, I'm going there right now with some colleagues...
r-g.com: Well, enjoy the game and we wait for photos (the
interview was made Friday evening); your fans will love to

sport" : *Oana Ban auto-sky-jet* whatever. Have fun!
