    ... and leery as I feared and suspected this would end in some kind of haggling over expected payment for service rendered. As I got to notice and realized his level of efficiency, however, I started to appreciate the help and service he was providing and was glad to offer a tip.

    ... Goa and Kerala delivered us nice, relaxing beaches. But we really got to chill out in the backwaters of the state of Kerala, as we floated on a house boat for a day, just taking in the majestic jungle waters of Southern India.

    ... music being played from rooftop restaurants and cafes and smells of the slowly cooking seafood. What a contrast those 2 hours made. Unfortunately again I was to get abit hustled when getting a room for myself as all the cheap places had been booked out, however at least this time I got abit of a nicer place for my money.
