Today, the kids and I joined in Chennai's first mass breast cancer awareness walk. While it was a minor feat organizing how to get to the location, it was a lot of fun walking and talking with friends for such a great cause.
Before the afternoon walk, our old neighbor invited the kids and I to lunch to welcome a new family to town. However, lunch ran late and the kids were having fun, so by the time we got home, we had to immediately change into tennis shoes, re-pack our things, and hop into a tuk tuk to get us to the starting point on time.
The walk wasn't very far (though with the girls whining you'd think they'd walked miles), and in less than thirty minutes we were at the finishing point. Of course, the sidewalk and parking lots at the beach where we were all marching were NOT closed down, and our group was completely interspersed with bicycles, motorcycles, cars, and an errant bus or two.
The girls favorite part? Definitely the tuk tuk ride there and home ... and the pins!
