Good write-up, Locomotive. And great pics too!

When I saw the thread first, I thought you drove down to London on your SX4!

:-) I would have then just named it "The long way around in an SX4". imagine then coming back to mumbai from the other end of the world. Wow that would be the mother of all roadtrips. Must add to the Bucket List.

and finally what everyone was waiting for, a the grand finale, juggling with a chainsaw. one miss and the chainsaw would cut through flesh and bone, at least thats what the artist promised.
