2. Hi there! Have you met my horse, Red Rum?

Answer: Ginger McCain

Ginger McCain trained Red Rum, one of 20th century Britain's most famous horses. Red Rum broke a number of records and won the Grand National three times: in 1973, 1974, and 1977. Ginger McCain loved horses from a young age, but was too tall to be a jockey. He turned his hand to training them instead. Red Rum was his most famous and most successful horse.

Maybe Ginger will let you ride his horse.
3. Goedemorgen, do you want to buy a painting?

Answer: Vincent Van Gogh

Vincent Van Gogh was a Dutch painter who lived in the latter half of the 19th century. Although he became one of the world's most iconic artists during the 20th century, he spent most of his life living in poverty. He created over 2,000 works of art in around a decade, but never sold enough to make a living.

If you want to redecorate, Van Gogh might be the neighbour to ask a favour from.
4. Preevet, dobri dyen. Will you join me for a dance?

Answer: Anna Pavlova

Anna Pavlova was a celebrated Russian ballet dancer at the beginning of the 20th century. She trained at the Imperial School of Ballet in St. Petersburg and in 1906, she became prima ballerina. Through the following decades, she travelled the world with her company and incorporated local dance styles into her routines.

Prepare to be mesmerised!
5. Hello. If you hear banging coming from my house, don't worry, it's normal!

Answer: Ringo Starr

Ringo Starr, a.k.a Sir Richard Starkey, gained fame as the drummer for the Beatles. He replaced their drummer, Pete Best. After the Beatles broke up, Starr set off on a successful solo career. He received a knighthood in 2018 for his contribution to the music industry.

As a drummer, you might hear a lot of noise coming from his house. Don't panic: he will soundproof his room... eventually.
6. Hi! I've just made moussaka; come and have a taste.

Answer: George Calombaris

George Calombaris was an Australian chef with Greek heritage. He won the Young Chef of the Year title when he was 24 and was the owner of numerous restaurants. He also has a number of cookbooks to his name. On TV, he appeared as a regular chef on 'Ready Steady Cook' and as a judge on 'Masterchef Australia'.

His house is the place to be for dinner every night!
7. Ciao! What do you think of my silk curtains? I bought them in Cathay.

Answer: Marco Polo

Marco Polo was a Venetian merchant and traveller known for crossing Asia along the Silk Road. He was born in the 13th century and lived in Cathay (a medieval name for China) for 17 years. 'Il milione' was written by Polo and descibes some of the places he visited.

Marco Polo travelled around Asia on missions for the Mongol emperor. He sure has some interesting stories to tell.
8. Hello. If you have aches and pains, I have a remedy for that.

Answer: Mary Seacole

Mary Seacole was born in 1805. Her father was a Scottish soldier and her mother was a free black Jamaican woman who used herbal remedies to treat people at her boarding house. Mary learned how to be a nurse from her mother, and gained more experience as she travelled around the Caribbean with her husband.

Seacole wanted to follow in the footsteps of Florence Nightingale and help soldiers injured the Crimean War. Her request was refused, possibly due to racial prejudice. Instead, Seacole raised her own funds, travelled to Crimea, and set up a hospital of her own.
9. Hi! If you have a problem with your Internet, I can probably fix it.

Answer: Tim Berners-Lee

Tim Berners-Lee was a computer scientist who created the World Wide Web. In the 1980s, he developed a program that allowed individual files to contain links to other files; a system that became known as hypertext. While working for CERN, he developed a global hypertext document system that used the Internet to allow researchers to look at each other's work without sending and receiving emails. The information could be placed 'online' and accessed at any time by anyone on the network.

Got a computer problem? Tim's your guy!
10. Kamusta! If you're looking to visit the Philippines, I can give you a few tips.

Answer: Corazon Aquino

Corazon Cojuangco was the first president of the Philippines after Ferdinand Marcos's dictatorship came to an end in 1986. Her husband was a political opponent of Marcos. During the 1970s and '80s, he was imprisoned, exiled, and then assassinated. Corazon Cojuangco subsequently became the face of a united opposition against the dictator.

What a vibrant neighbourhood you live in!
