Signature offered me a free standing bungalow. It is clean and quiet but sits a few blocks walk from the main strip. If it hadn't rained it would be fine, but I struggled walking through the puddles each night to make my way home in the dark.
They have wifi but only in the main building with no common area to sit. Price was competitive but I would prefer to stay on the strip next time.
Like most places there is no hot water but they provided a bucket upon request.

... passions must have been quite a culture shock. We all came together however when the boats tried to land through the pounding surf. All hands went to the ropes to haul the boats in, and we were a good source of income, buying fish off the boats no doubt at a healthy price.

I'm finally in India, after literally months of not bothering to organise myself I'm actually here! First a big thanks to everyone who helped me get here but a special mention to my Dad for a full week of 9-5 graft helping getting the house ready and to Mr Miller for joining in and getting me over the line.
So it turns out I wasn't ready for India, and it kinda kicked my ass for the first few days. My flights were both delayed, my bags got lost for several hours and it took forever ...
... vacation from India, a far cry from the madness of Mysore or any of the larger cities. Everything you need can be obtained on the cliff face, no more than a 5-10 minute walk away. We managed to book our train to Varanasi from Chennai here in one of the travel agents, which was quite exciting. He was a dubious at first, so we gave him a range of dates and we managed to get a 2AC seat for the 28th January. It's a 36 hour journey, but much ...
... spot for our bags. I decided I was going to sleep with mine on my bunk, even though this would mean I would have to stay curled up the whole night to fit. Raluca, being the brave one, decided to tie hers up under her bunk, on the floor of the train. I thought she was crazy, but she figured if someone tried to steal it, it would take them a while to untie it all and she would wake up before they got it. We went to sleep and at some point later more people got in and came to our ...
