What a great day!! The flower markets were amazing and so glad we didn't go earlier as apparently it's even busier ... Everyone buying their flowers for worship and celebrations. Men straining up the flowers, their hands move so fast Off to another temple .... Was a big temple !! Sri Meenakshi temple ...dating back to 1600s ..its outer walls 1216. …
... with that So lovely to have a balcony, no aircon and a view into the country side across a logon filled with water hyacinth ... yah ! Much quieter town in the middle of the forest ... Oh and so much cooler This Arvo we went to this delightful mans house for a "spice tour" well pretty much I had seen most of the fruits and spices he was growing but it was very interesting to see that he had ...
... wishing I had a smaller note than the 100 rupees I am resentfully handing over.
We have done almost no research into this place at all and it comes as a pleasant surprise to see a huge temple on an island and a 20 metre stone figure of what looks like a dwarf (actually some hero poet of Tamil folklore) off shore.

Kanyakumari is a place of pilgrimage. ...
... big would happen when i got there.....
Classic gag and i fell for it but who'd have known a so called saint would do that, obviously the Indian saint of practical jokes....!
So as you might have guessed, nothing happened, in fact Maduari was boring, only 2 points of interest, a big temple and a palace which were worth seeing but that was all i found the place to offer and left for Rameswaram some 12 hours after arriving.....
... as did 1945 on the clock, getting to our nice hotel. Two immediate negatives: no beer and it took a long time for the luggage to move.The B Team put their bags in their rooms and headed off to dinner. Had a spicy masala prawns which met expectations. Have to pack a night bag re the homestay.Dumb me couldn't figure how to get the key into the area re electricity. Pamster gave it a woman's touch. Still don't know what I was doing wrong. Pix downloaded and a bit of email.
