India - Don't wear shorts

Men and women should avoid wearing shorts in India as there is a stigma attached to Western adults wearing them. Shorts are seen as the uniform of the poorest people in Indian society and also - for men - they are traditionally just for young boys.

Creased clothes should be avoided too - Indians are fastidious about their appearances, so take advantage of street ironing booths, or hotel laundry and ironing services, to avoid causing offence.


We're doing great here... we are 75% towards our charity goal and we think its about time we thanked a few people personallys--- if you donated using "anon" then let us remimd you that nothing is anonymous on the internets.

we cant put them in any order at all.. so i've decided the best way to list them is as they pop into my head..

dixie at flea market for giving us a free stall not once but twice!
bridget for not understanding what we're actually doing and not being able to work the internet
dave at betty fords for putting his money where his mouth is
remco for sitting next to me at work, listening to my india spiel for weeks and still donating
carlos for recalling his keke impression
asia for forcing her friend dave to donate and then donating herself..not ltierally.
dave at relevant magazine for being an editor who pays for an article
dr robert! he's got everything you need, dr robert
hannah for donating rather than buying drinks
nini for having the best name and being mum
david rodney for giving even though we havent spoken since school
scott at vision 33 for taking the time away from dancing and singing to get his wallet out
micha for being a truck driver with a heart
andi m from der toten hosen for proving punks not dead
my brother thomas for putting down his rifle for a moment to find some cash
sam i am for being the first
nathalie for giving up smoking and donating the cash
arlo for convincing me donate 20 euros for him, eh?
stuart at wingman for being the first sponsor on board
ben at helmet dress for doing more than he needed
clara and wolfgang for working out how the net works
mike ryan for finding a way to donate without a bank account
krut and obi for having great golden beer....

thats the list so far... just reading it again we notice that, that's pretty much the squad so far... the only thing missing is your name! (unless we missed you by mistake)

We've rooted around the back of the sofa, emptied the cookie jar and our pockets raising money for our charity trip. We even contacted Great Aunt Wilema but she cut us off over that incident at the garden party last year (everyone knows that it wasnt Lord Ogilvy's chukka) .. now maybe you can help us out.

Frank water needs squillions of dosh to fund clean water projects in Indi.

        What are we offering you exactly?
        Well, apart from a nice feeling of helping out people who have no water supply we can also make sure that you, your company or organisation gets maximum media coverage during our trip. We have set up blogs and web sites to help do this as well as getting the support of national and international press, webs and TV.

        If you are a company or organisation:
        Your logo will be emblazoned across our tuk-tuk for all to see and we will send you daily live updates, videos and photos. On our return we can even come to your offices to give a motivational presentation of how your donation is helping provide clean safe water for 1000's of people.

        If you are an individual:
        Not only will your name will appear on our blog thank you list, but we will enter your name into the hat to be adopted as the name of our tuktuk (even if you`re called Tarquin or Shanique). Not only that but you will recieve a special personalised gift from india, as well as access to our blog for daily updates, videos and photos.
