All the best fellas.
Welcome to Chennai where hiring/travelling in a tuktuk is nightmare. Why Chennai --> Goa ( East to West). Would be much easier from Kochi to Goa along the West coast.

To date we've raised in the region of $32k! Still a bit to go to reach our target.

An interesting first couple of days! Yesterday picked up our Tuk Tuks and spent hours driving around chennai visiting schools as part of charity drive. Chennai is crazy! Today we did chennai to velore, 140km. We broke down 3 times in the first 20 km! Like our Facebook page to see pics and updates!

Another Kingfisher please!
