    Chai has (generally condensed) milk in it but "suleiman chai" is without milk - I don't drink milk and worked in India for a while and never managed to get a drinkable cup!

    That's pretty much how I did it - checking that it has been planned - but I wasn't going to try and second guess people who knew more about it than me!

    I think this is kind of where it should be but if you go too far down this route the DO will go mad!

    No that's not in the rules - its clearly one "experience" per dive so no "low viz, from a boat, in protective clothing: that's three on that dive" etc.

    The efficiency of open fires is appalling - only 10-15% of the heat you pay for ends up in your house, the rest heats the countryside. A stove will get 70% easily.
