The last of India

A travel blog entry by keeleymclaren on Jul 18, 2014

... my bag weighed dead on 15kg. I spent my last night in India with a few beers on the beach followed by my last fish curry.
The following morning we chilled over breakfast uploading all our photos before getting a rickshaw to the train station. We got the hour train to Trivandrum unfortunately having to stand the entire way as it was packed. Once there we left our bags at the station and wandered round. There wasn't anything ...
