How much is that in rupees?


For the Avon Breast Cancer Walk, I'm up to almost $1400 in donations! (Verbal donations, cash not yet applied, etc. included) I honestly can't believe it. I'm going to try for a final push to get the remainder of my donations by the end of March...

Why the urgency?

Because I think I'm actually going to India! I have contacted some organizers at an event I will be attending and things seem to be rolling along. I'm not sure how long I'll be able to in the country (and I know that it isn't vacation in the least...I'll be working and moving constantly), but I'm very very excited! I believe I'll be spending three days in Delhi and then will be sent around the country in a whirlwind tour to cities like Jaipur and Udaipur, plus Agra and Varanasi.

So I'd love to have all of my fundraising done before I leave so I can focus on walking when I get back. I hope I don't get sick and lose strength before the walk. That would be the worst.

Speaking of... I have started training with my co-workers and it has been a blast so far. I have learned so much about each of them as we walk in laps at various fitness centers. We can't wait to start walking outside and for longer stretches of time. It has been going really well so far.

Anyways, just a little news from my world! And my page once again.

Good luck with India - Rachel's brother had a horrible time there. But he wasn't exactly being funded by a luxury travel company and eats weird things. On the contrary, a former lab member of mine had a nice time.

Do you get to see the monkey temple?

Watch out for re-used bottles when you ask for bottled water :) Sneaky sneaky...
