        We walked up a looooonnnngg hill that was "never going to end" to get to the infinity pool. Breathtaking views and truly paradise. I don't think I'm going out on a limb here, but the Hotel Leela is possibly the most beautiful place I've ever been to. (....and I've been to a lot of nice ...

The police are normally willing to take a bribe but not on this particular night, we suspect this was due to the large number of locals partying in the bar.

        ... We headed back to the train station nice and early to find that the train to Kerala was delayed. Surprise surprise! So our wait was extended further. So another few hours were spent on the platform, with not a lot happening except an official looking man (either police or rail security) man-handling a beggar who Izzy was about to give some biscuits to.
