JOPLIN, Mo.
Lena Faber is a newspaper journalist from Russia. She’s on a journey, riding her bike down Route 66. Farber started in Chicago and plans to end in Santa Monica, California. Each night she either camps out in a tent or stays with someone she’s met along the way. She says a journey like this has its challenges.
“Yes, a lot of challenges. Of course, it’s a lot of places to stop, a lot of people to chat. So it’s nothing to do with, it’s just about enjoying yourself as long as you can,” said Lena Faber, Route 66 Traveler.
