Ruairidh’s Story

Our trip started after our Bentley car was delivered by Bunty at Kochi. It was great that our car was here and had no more problems.

We didn’t know what our first camp would be like, but it was better than I thought it would be, and our tent even had it’s own toilet.

As we arrived at Ooty my mum showed me the school where she used to go when she was little. On the way to Hampi our car broke down but we couldn’t make the rest of that day’s journey so we found a garage and left the men to work on the car. In our hotel room that night, when I opened the toilet door all these bugs crawled out.

One of the volvo cars had it’s grille bashed in by one of the other rally cars in an accident, but he managed to get it bashed out and spray painted.

To get to see the Hampi temples we had to take a small boat that could carry about 30 people and three motorbikes even though it was only about 20 feet long.

In Hyderabad I went swimming in a very cold swimming pool, but my mum couldn’t go in because she was sick from food poisoning.

When we got to Nagpur, we went to see Leah. She helps women who have leprosy and HIV. She told us a story about a lady who they found under a flyover who couldn’t walk and was all dirty. She took the lady to her refuge to help her. We met her and she was clean now and was smiling. I gave Leah the money that the scouts had raised for her charity.
