... piles of, well, you know! Stay by the sea and it was non existent, instead just lots of crabs running in and out and a huge rat carcass! More westerners around, but still pretty quiet. I love the boats, pulled up to the palms and leant against them - done their job for the day, now resting. It is the idyll here, no doubt about it. I have never been to a place I could describe as a so close to perfection - it sounds corny and overly gushy, but it's ...

Kerala must host the world record for vegetarian restaurants – and finally I managed to find really good curries, mostly for less than a pound each!
