I was considering a paddle from Tripoli to Japan starting over Easter hols.
I was intending dropping off a choc bunny in Palestine on Easter Sunday to mark the resurrection.
It has to be a chocolate one as the book says:-
'Whatever divides the hoof, and is cloven-footed, chewing the cud, among the animals, that you shall eat.
'Only, you shall not eat these of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: the camel, for he chews the cud but does not divide the hoof; he is unclean to you.
And the rock badger, because he chews the cud, but does not divide the hoof; he is unclean to you.
'And the hare, because he chews the cud but does not divide the hoof; he is unclean to you.'
Thought I might just chuck it over the West Bank barrier. Hopefully the Israelis wouldn't mistake it for an incoming missile and use it as an excuse to launch a disproportionate military retaliation - obviously there is no precedent to think so.
My route was via Egypt, Yemen, the coast of Somalia, Myanmar.
However, I think my insurance policy exclusions have put paid.
