    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 ...

    ... I think I love them so much because they're just gonna forever remind me of India now.

    And in other news, I've resorted to the only sane haircut in a climate which considers 30C with 70% humidity a pleasantly cool day. It had gotten to the point where even my brain was sweating as my hair rampaged on its mission to take over the ******* world, but now ...

    ... my hands. As we were leaving they asked for a donation and unfortunately we didn't have any money on us. I felt kind of bad. We thanked them as much as possible and headed inside.

    We ate breakfast at the place and got ready to head out. The bus ride consisted of some more sleeping of course. We stopped in Alleppey to go on a backwater house boat tour. It was beautiful and relaxing. I sat in the front on a comfortable couch where I ...

    ... plus years that have elapsed since we last met. We took the customary pictures. It was probably boring for the spouses involved as they would find it hard to follow the memories we talked about. The day ended with me visiting one of my roommates from college who could not make it to the lunch. I took the "Super Deluxe - Air Ride" bus from Trivandrum to Kollam to my friend Santhosh's house. It was a very memorable ...
