“I feel short-changed,” a family member said to me yesterday. At first, I didn’t understand what she meant. Then I realised it was because we haven’t got any further north than Johannesburg since we set off on our bikes from Cape Town on November 1st last year. Not only that, but in a few weeks time we will be boarding a bus, with bikes and panniers, and returning to our starting point… albeit temporarily.
Cape Town. This time, it is not your magnetic attraction, your mountain or beaches, our families or our friends, or even the active and compassionate vegan community that is pulling us back to you. It is one incredible man and his amazing wife: Will and Madeleine Tuttle.
Will Tuttle is the author of the The World Peace Diet, an Amazon best-seller. It is probably the most important and all-encompassing book about peace and its link with veganism. You only have to read these reviews to begin to get an idea of the power of this book. I would recommend that anyone who cares about the state of our planet, the sad plight of our farmed animals, and the continuation of the human race, read this book. It is written with such intelligence, such love, and with compassion for all beings, animal and human, vegan and non-vegan.
So, if you fall into any of the above categories, don’t miss Will’s lecture tour. He will be giving presentations in Greyton, Western Cape from the 1st January 2016 to the 3rd. In Cape Town from the 4th January to the 8th. In Durban on the 9th and in Johannesburg on the 13th. We will publish the details of this tour on our Facebook page when we have them.
This also ties in with the Veganuary initiative. “Veganuary aims to reduce the suffering of animals by inspiring and supporting people across the globe to go vegan for the month of January.” Their website explains how it all works and offers an amazing support package for anyone whose new year’s resolution is to go vegan.
We will continue our PEACE cycle to Ethiopia in the new year.
See you on the road.
