... long pants gawking at every half dressed woman. To add to the confusion of the Indian men staring at the western women, whom all seemed to be European, over 50 and pasty white, many of the Indian men were partaking in man-on-man hand holding. Not just holding hands but the full interlocking finger ship that most romantic partners enjoy. Even the occasional swinging of hand was witnessed. We spent the day exploring the back alley walkways of the town ...

It wasn’t until I got among the rocks that I found a few things that ...

... St. Josephs represents more than that, it is in fact one of the finest primary education facilities in the area. Kids at St. Josephs have high quality teachers and the Sisters (Catholic Nuns) who run the school administration are very able and considerate persons. Kids who attend St. Josephs really do enjoy going to school, they have fun and friends and they really are learning through appropriate and effective avenues. We enjoyed our time at St. Josephs ...

... pressure of time on us and Mum and Dad were able to rest and sleep while Vinh and I soaked up the last of the sun. I was quite sad to say goodbye to all the local people we met. We’ll miss their smiles, cheerful greetings and kind, honest service. What a great place.

... to visit some temples. One was newer, more manicured, with potted plants everywhere, and different shrines on different levels as you climbed up. Priests walked about or sat and prayed in their robes. The other was more colorful and interesting. There was a shrine built around a 2,000 year old banyan tree, and also the main temple's roof was covered in deities & animals. There was also another tree with hundreds of dolls hanging from it, like an overcrowded ...

    Reached the hotel half way by a small taxi (poorly organised leaving one of the hotel staff members to walk to the hotel from the airport) and half by walking with a hotel boy dragging all the bags. Guy on the night reception desk (4.30am) could hardly speak any English causing us to be delayed getting into our rooms. Even thought Ruchi had booked them 3months in advance to be two A/C room next to each other the night receptionist insisted he puts us in two separate buildings. I'm not sure what star accommodation this is, (if any) but wasn't too impressed not too sure what all the positive reviews are about on trip advisor?!!? The smell of the pillows..... :o! Pretty sure I noticed some sort of stains on the sheets and also might I add the shower room had a leaky butt washer spray right next to the toilet :/
