    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.

We even sleep through it! We soon went to the beach for a swim in the very warm waters of the Arabian ...

I can also now eat like a proper Indian with my hands have perfected the technique - scoop the curry into your four fingers and push it all into your mouth with your thumb! The next day I jumped on a local ferry and made my way down to kollam which was a pit stop ...

    ... got one of the old Ambassador (Morris Cowley's) to take us to Kovalam. We went to the first decent hotel and took a look at the room. I could develop aggrophobia in there and so checked in. Finally we were off that train.
