Hi Louis,
Thanks for the very interesting talk yesterday at NTU. I mentioned about the maintenance of the Solartaxi and would like to meet up with you again this morning. Where abouts at the Singapore Polytechnic will that be?

I am a friend of Esther in Luzern and she just sent me your progress report.
Great to hear it is all going well. I have been following your progress around the world so I thought I would drop you a line to wish you and your team the best of luck with the second half of the mission and especially good luck with the China crossing...

I wish you clear, sunny skies and as my favourite saying goes:

"The trail is the thing, not the end of the trail. Travel too fast and
you miss all you are traveling for"

....coincidentally, I just realised that that was written by another Louis...... (Louis L'Amour in "Ride the Dark Trail")

All the best !!

Hi Louis
Thanks for an excellent presentation on Tuesday at NTU. I thoroughly enjoyed the stories of your trip and the interesting encounters on the way.
My Solar Car team popped down to Singapore Polytechnic and saw the taxi and have gleamed some ideas for our car. Good luck with the next 20,000km and hopefully we will have a second car ready for WAVE.

Congrats to your 1/2 way mark-lots of work! keep it up

You should mark the progress of your journey of 40,000KM with the "progressing" price of crude oil per barrel. It will demonstrate a key point.

Best to you and the crew
