Posted:Hey folks, I have a big ol' favor to ask.

SO, I know the plethora of fuels people use. My troupe uses straight white gas, lots use kerosene, and there are many, many others.

Well... here is the question... soon I will be going to Chennai, which is the capital city of Tamil andu, India, for about 4 and a half months. I whole heartedly plan on dancing while there. I am pretty sure that they dont have white gas there..... and I really have no idea what I am up against as far as finding a decent fuel goes.

Does anyone have any ideas or advice as to what I might expect when I get there? And any ideas as to how, once I am in India and speak neither Tamil or Telugu, can somehow convince folks that me lighting things on fire and spinning them around my body is a good idea, and get them to give me some flammable liquid that wont blow up in my face????/

Thanks......

Looks like there is a huge oil lamp culture in chennai. It would appear that fire is a big part of the cities history and culture... my guess is you will have no problem obtaining lamp oil.

EDIT: Looks like this crew of Missionaries spin fire while spreading the gospel.. they did so in Chennai you may contact them for advice... or not wink
