The Leela hotel room is where we started a 5 hour drive to The Trident hotel. the Leela is very nice and provides great service. They really care about us. The hotel rooms are GREAT! The beaches are very nice and the pool is VERY nice. The only downfalls are that there is a road that separates the rooms and the hotel. The other downfall is that there are A LOT of salespeople. Not a great hotel if you are gullible.
Otherwise, the hotel is great.

... from our first homestay AND Alleppey! Starting to think they were following us haha. We told them to join us later for the live music, and later chatted away with Babu, the restaurant owner, and told him to also join us at the bar later to watch the band. An hour later we headed over to the bar to see if our weird band of merry men that we had gathered would actually show up, and they did. And we had a wonderful evening playing cards and drinking half price ...
... a western lunch of margarita pizza and fries. Soda was the drug of the day. We must have drained at least two litres of the comfort drink. We then had our first dip in the Indian Ocean....we are now true Indians. A salty experience much like the Pacific and Atlantic sea funnily enough. We ate fruit salad on the beach made by a local woman who made us two even though we asked for one.....then wanted us to buy the second. It finally feels like a ...
Time to reacquaint ourselves with public transport....no myki required. We caught the bus today to the main city of the area, Trivandrum. This vehicle was straight out of MASH. Built like a tank and with the battle scars to match. We are at the beginning of the route so there was no trouble getting a seat, this however did not last long. The old Sherman filled up mighty quick. I was continually up and down as I ...
