    Breezy city retreat

    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 ...

    ... 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 ...

    ... the odd Italian meal. The restaurants are all placed on the top of a cliff looking out to sea, the views are great, get to watch the waves in a morning and fishing boats at night. We've also learnt to play a few different card games whilst being here (i'm (Char) the main winner!) One of the days we took a rickshaw to the train station to buy our tickets from Delhi to Agra for our visit to the Taj Mahal on the 13th. We thought we where ...
