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.

While at the surf shop I noticed a posting for a daytrip the following day to a temple festival somewhere in the countryside near Varkala. The surf shop dudes highly recommended going, so I planned for it. The temple procession was very entertaining and one of my favorite experiences in India.

Where we waited an hour for a train, rode that train for an hour, and got off in Varkala, right where we had been 3 hours ...
... dished the food out to her family and while they snacked on their dinner, we feasted on a packet of chips and some biscuits...YUM!!! Once dinner was over and all the dishes had been cleared away (??!!!) we were all pretty tired and were each looking at each other to see who was going to make the move first. Travelling in a compartment with so many people is always tricky...the person on the very top has the best spot (if you can climb up there)...here, you can go ...
... the kitchen. She gives us a thorough tour, explaining in painstaking detail where everything needed to be stowed after drying. I felt like I was back in elementary school. Nick and I start cranking away on the drying, lightening up the mood by joking around with the girls on wash duty, as well as any other innocent bystander who would walk past us. We weren't trying to be loud or obnoxious. We were just being our typical sociable selves. Well, we weren't making too many friends with ...
