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.

Her mood wasn't helped by the adjacent church blaring Tamil hymns over a loudspeaker. Eventually the sun broke through the hazy horizon and everyone ...
... option, yet this seems to be a lifestyle choice for a number of young Brits we have met so far.
Anyway, two hours later we find ourselves dropped off at a large train station junction where we attempt to find someone in authority to confirm that we are indeed at the right place. Eventually we do find someone who speaks English, only to be told after he viewed our ticket that the ticket we had been sold was for a waiting list only. After witnessing our slight ...
... a group activity, meditating in a group on a beautiful beach at sunset, as we did that afternoon, was a surreal experience.
From the surreal to the this-can't-be-real, Nick and I spent our final night at the ashram as we had every other night, on dish duty. The only difference was that we were short handed because it was Friday night -although I was confused as to what makes Friday night any different than other nights at an ashram. As we slaved away in the kitchen, our mood ...
