    ... been good to have the extra push to workout while I've been here. The doc told me I have a lot of unused energy, so I should include yoga and exercise into my daily routine. On Tuesday we had already decided to stay an extra couple of nights so had a lazy afternoon on the beach after paying a visit to the lovely Gujarati's I had met the last time i was here. The young guy there is a tattoo artist who was tempting us with his amazing talent and Jo decided ...

At the foreigner beach, bathing suits are allowed for women. However, we got MANY stares! It was ...

    ... Noone had mentioned that some trains stop in Varkala on their way to Trivandrum! By the time we saw the sign, it was too late to get all of our stuff and make it off the train (unless we wanted to jump off a moving train like the locals do!) so we tried to convince ourselves that it was a different Varkala and took the train another hour to Trivandrum.

    ... we had no choice to eat with our hand, right hand of course, as your left hand is seen as dirty in India. I tell you, its quite a technique picking up rice and curry sauce with 1 hand. My chin and trousers had a decent feed too. In the evening we met in the main hall for Satsang. We lay out the yoga mats and got in to position. Copying everyone else; legs crossed, finger and thumb making a circle with hands placed on our knees, and your back ...
