heels on fire

Peter underestimates the sheer endurance that my bar - Camilla demands of me. Like other Camillas we know, this one is bit of a horse too and gallops me down the road to inebriation faster than anyone can say Coconut toddy. But, we know Pete is less of 'runner with drinking problems' and more of a 'drinker with running problems', but hey - how many of us ever have the guts to plan and attempt such a run?

25 kilometres a day is going to be a tough ask and I still think you need to plan a few more breaks in between. you might have to run early in the morning as well to beat the killing heat, although this might pose problems in terms of logistics and publicity. Plus you are likely to encounter the morning hordes of Kerala men weaving back from toddy shops after their morning 'cuppa' of toddy and 'kappa'.
We need to build up the momentum for this fast too - let me twist the arms of a couple of Kerala NGOs. We could enlist your cousin Thomas to lecture them on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). It is possible that my Kerala Comrades might mistake it for a new legal provision that allows one trade union per employee in private companies.

Fire away guys! Use this blog to record new ideas, advice, doubts contacts, addresses of toddy shops etc. All emails intended for our in boxes can instead appear here - it doesn't require that much of an extra effort. Not quite as much as Pete will require for his run.

I have been tinkering around with the brief of the who and why...and I am certain it will be ready to finalise later today. I am going to have to ask your help to put together a suitable PR style brochure. I will send through pictures. I am thinking we should put the map onto it aswell...though it doesnt show Mangalore. Hoping you have some free time tomorrow? Happy Holi by the way!
