Namaskaara and welcome to the sequel of the sequel of the blockbusting Loop Trilogy. Sadly, it will be the last one of its kind, as we are approaching the end of our Raleigh 12C India expedition. But there is also a good side to it: Finally, I can pull the Star Wars theme (saving the best for last)! Reggie Skywalker and Joe Solo used the Force (Big Manju) to visit the far, far away galaxies of Charlie 2, Tango 5, and Echo 4. The other good side to it: Finally and met plezier, we let the Dutch people have their say. So here is lovely Roosmarijn Groen with a short overview of what Charlie 2 has been up to:
|Village koningin Roos|
|Charlie 2 is most likely to win the Oscar for shortest commute from camp to worksite|
After a warm welcome from the villagers of Koranchal, the last but not least Charlie 2 started their final adventure with Raleigh in India. With a campsite located in the centre of the village, we became a part of their community faster than expected.

|During thunderstorms, Charlie 2 finds shelter in the villagers' houses and helps out with keeping kids entertained.|
In the hope that we will finish all the 14 toilets, the lovely community is supporting us with lots of flowers, chai, and great food.
We are going to try our best, the sky is the limit!
|Ramesh, Jedi Master in long-handed mamptee wielding|
|Every day, the locals bring flowers to glamour-up the girls...|
|... and Reggie.|
|The eating-Force is strong with Canadians and Irish.|
And now: The one and only message to family and friends. Evidently, if she is not building toilets, PM Amanda works in publishing. Thanks for supporting the beauty of the written word inside and outside Raleigh!
