    We had to say goodbye to Rory and Vic Yesturday as they were heading back up to the north, but we really hope to cross paths again as we got on with them so well. As they were leaving in a taxi the man at the hotel came over and asked where they were going in a panic. He told us that they had forgotten to pay and was trying to get us to pay up for them. We contacted them on facebook but didnt have a number for them. In the end he was able to contact the taxi ...

    ... should try something from the menu we hadn't tried yet. It worked out well except for Izzy's 'Kashmir' naan, which came with jam, melon, apple and grapes on it! It didn't quite go so well with her curry but was acceptable as a dessert. We said our goodbyes as they got on their bus and we headed in search of a hotel.

    The 1st wake up bell rings at 5:20 AM, the 2nd at 5:30. You peel back the mosquito net dangling over your little bed and the morning begins with a congregation in the Shiva Hall for Satsang. A brief meditation ...

    ... the beach. Roaring waves break onto the clean white sand that is not overcrowded with people. You find no ugly hotel towers here, only smaller guest houses which are mostly family run.

    But on the beach of Varkala you not only meet beach tourists. On small pontoon like boats fishermen are going out to sea each day. When they return they sell their catch to locals right on the beach. This very beach is also a sacred place to the Indians. They come here to ...

    ... eat to help keep my system clean. They also give me a spoon. Thank you very much. The Indians here all eat with their hands. It is a bit shocking at first. Perhaps I will try it later, but I’m not ready just yet. There is the Ayurvedic water that I had at Krishnatheeram on the table, but I decide to get a bottle of water instead. Don’t want to push it, particularly after the other night. The meal for both of us ends up being ...
