    Situated on a hill on the outskirts of the city, we were pleased to have the quiet and the breeze that this afforded. We had the large double and it was spacious and airy with a lovely verandah to sit in. We found a local restaurants within walking distance for lunch and went into the city for dinner on the first evening and had a meal in the homestay the other, before our early start in the morning back home. All the food at Graceful was good and tasty, and Giles, Sylvia and Elsie thoughtful and helpful hosts.

    A fairly easy and calm journey of two and a half hours by train took us from Kanyakumari to Trivandrum (in the state of Kerala).  The train was quiet but, luckily, we saw the large numbers on the platform waiting to catch the train at Trivandrum and were ready at the door when the train stopped to force ourselves off - both verbally and physically …

    This city is another built on 7 hills and the port of Poovar, where out hotel is situated, is meant to have received ships from King Solomon , around 1000 BC! We arrived here after another long 5 h drive, this time on better, straighter road but single lane with enormous traffic. We have got used to hooting every few moments by now. We even sleep through it! We soon went to the beach for a swim in the very warm waters of the Arabian ...

    ... a game of bounding through the water and pretty much registered off the charts on the Cute Scale. There are lions and tigers and all manner of deer, and a reptile house where I was more impressed by Indians actually queuing than I was by the collection inside. I'm not even ******** you, people actually forming an orderly line and when someone tried to push ...

    ... Evil the slip. We breathed in that sweet air-conditioned air and we were Varkala bound. That brings us to the beach town of Varkala. A small hill top town built on the edge of a cliff. When we say edge, it could be no closer. A town like this in Australia or the States would be sprayed with warning signs requiring you to sign a disclaimer for your safety at the front gate. A favourite destination for white Europeans oiled up ...

    ... lol. We finally arrived in Varkala around 6:30pm and got checked into some dirt cheap rooms right on the cliff front! The rooms are quite nice, just very basic. Then we've just spent the last 6 days doing nothing much but relaxing really! Had some great food here. Amazing breakfasts such as banana pancakes, fresh fruit salads, steak and eggs, fish and eggs. Also had some great evening meals such as fresh fish, king prawns, tandoori ...
