    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.

    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 ...

    ... oblivious and topped up her tan on the beach. When the big day arrived we woke Laura up with balloons, streamers and the biggest party popper in India (which spread glitter all over the bed, Ailie, and my wide open clothes bag!!) A pancake breakfast was next on the agenda, followed by a relaxed tanning time on the beach. Laura was then whisked away by rickshaw for a local Ayurvedic massage while Ails and Chloe set up the "Ultimate Travellers Tat Treasure Hunt!" So, once ...

    By 2pm we were housed in our home for the night, and given the humidty, it meant an afternoon sleeping off the morning exertions, in the air conditioning, which came on and off depending on how much it had work! Some more adventurous souls went down to the beach to suntan (yes those intrepid English), but the ...
