... it was like being in a club! Despite nearly brining on a headache and melt down it was a brilliant experience and just crazy to think this was a normal everyday bus.
Our sleeper train was at midnight and we had 5 hours to kill once we arrived at the station. Fortunately Dads eagle eyes managed to get us into an air conditioned bar, where we could have a smoke and were treated to an array of free nibbles. This killed the time perfectly and the wait wasn't too bad, bar ...
... and eager to get underway. The start of the climb is gentle and well lit with a good few other climbers out already. After an hour or so I stop briefly for a cup of tea and realise that I am wet with sweat. Wearing a cotton T shirt was a bad move, and one I would have ample opportunity to regret in the high winds at the summit as we waited for the sun to rise. In the final hour the climb becomes very steep and I am moving slowly, putting both feet onto each step ...

Typically the Indians have a quirky way of minimising things. This walk turned out to be some 20 minutes in rather oppressively hot and humid conditions: a continuation of the weather we experienced in Cochin ...
... fine example of Indian customer service!
What do the English do when there is nothing else to do? That's right - get ******. We were sent to the dodgiest "liquor shop," in the world! Getting hold of booze here is like orchestrating a massive drug deal. We had to walk 20 minutes out of the hostel and down some dark alley ways and "look for a group of men crowding around outside a shop." Upon our approach to the shop we could see it was basically a garage ...
