Lighthouse Beach Kovalam

We got another cheap taxi with Rory and Vic that took around 1hour to Kovalam's, lighthouse beach. We set off on a mission to find a cheap hotel with a pool, as we were all longing for a non salty swim. We walked the whole length of the beach checking in every place to see if they had a pool. With not much luck we came across - Jeevans - but at 1200rs a night it was much more then we wanted to pay, so ...

Sad to be leaving Hampi, but on to Kerala next.

Eventually one of the elephants went off and walked across the river and the remaining four walked back across the ...

... Indians come to the beach on the weekend just to hang out. Most of them cannot swim so they just splash and play in the shallow water. They play very wild and rambunctiously like children. It is wonderful to watch. If the women go into the water at all it is in their normal clothes…yes in those beautiful saris and punjabis. It makes you wonder what they think of the Western girls stepping into the water next to them wearing only a tiny bikini. Indian men come to ...

... we did find the Indian equivalent of Marks and Sparks or Debenhams. It's the first really large scale operation we've seen. Everyone is still a salesman though and targets white people like mosquitoes seem to be targeting us. Another satisfying day in India finished with a curry - of course. Now relaxing in the hotel with postcards, sports for Sean and a bit of light reading for Laura.On to Varkala tomorrow where we are hoping to get on the beach to even out the t-shirt ...
