Travel Blogs from Kanyakumari
Første weekend i Madurai var allerede planlagt da jeg landede. Ikke af mig, men af Projects Abroad. Hver anden weekend arrangerer de ture til områderne omkring Madurai.
Efter nogle travle dage ventede altså en ligeså travl weekend.
Vi kørte med en offentlig bus til Kanyakumari, på vejen stod der flere frivillige på fra de projekter der …
I have now reached my most southern destination in India - any further south and I wouldn't be in India. Cape Comorin is the tip of the country where 3 oceans meet. Its a seaside town that has a strong smell of fish and salty water and is a mecca for people making a pilgrimage to the temple on the very tip. There is also a temple on an offshore …
... reach it. Let’s just say the traffic in the towns was pretty bad with only single lanes of traffic with about 3 lanes of cars, buses, tuk tuks, transport movers and motorbikes trying to get by. Added to that is that it has been a bad monsoon and much of the road is washed out or filled with elephant sized potholes.
The Palace was just beautiful and well maintained. Once again we had to remove our chappels(shoes) and pay for a camera ticket and an inflated ...
... br> Tomorrow I have been asked to teach the PE teachers how to give sport instructions in English, as the sports teachers speak mostly Tamil, this will amuse you Marc, Jamie, Dan as my knowledge is limited to rounders and netball neither of which they play so it could be an entertaining start to the day.

... with wind turbines slightly perplexing. All of the other volunteers we have met since we’ve been here have been awesome and really friendly so big thanks to them for helping us settle in.
Apart from that, I think I’m done. Everyone we have met thus far have been really friendly and helpful and we’ve had a great time. I imagine this blog will take more shape when we leave and travel as it won’t be quite such a repetitive routine as teaching at ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
Projects Abroad had booked the rooms for us. We payed 650 Rps pr. room pr. night. It was double rooms, so the amount was split, but you can find cheaper stays in Kanyakumari.
The restaurant served us good food, though a little slow at times.
There is a bar which closes at 10 p.m.
The rooms were fine for a short stay. A big bed, a sofa with a table, a televison, a seiling fan and own bath and western style toilet. Unfortunatly our room had an attraction to ants, so the floors were alive when we got in. But it was no problem to get one of the men of the service department to remove them with a broomstick and that actually pretty much took care of the problem.
