China here we come

It hasn't been the most eventful week in Tukland; no more Survival Courses or learning how to splint fractures. However, on the logistics front we made some headway since the CITS in Beijing have now confirmed that we can enter China on June 10th. Which means leaving Bangkok on May 30th, and leaving home on May 20th. That will give us enough time in Bangkok to become acquainted with our tuk tuk, get some mechanical training and generally fine tune our preparations.

Other main news this week is that we are getting our fundraising action plan in place and exploring security issues. We hope to have a launch party at The Cobden Club in early / mid May with some great bands, and also a fundraising event in Norfolk, in the less glamorous but equally entertaining surrounds of Cley Village Hall. We'll keep you posted about both events and dates will be confirmed next week.

Also, congratulations to Anna and James for their engagement. About time! Please don't get married till after we come back; Jo might even lend you the TT as your wedding car.

Jo's off to India next week to see her fiancee Raja. Does anyone want to look after her ferrets??
