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.

During the first day we realized that it didn't seem like the boys played many sports despite the fact that they had a great basketball court and big field next to the orphanage. We therefore that Monday afternoon walked in to the little close by city and got a basketball, a soccer ball and some tennis balls. This became a real hit. From that day on we played a mix of different sports for an hour every day when the boys ...
... if ever I saw it. Also in attendance was an intermediary relative who was expressionless. I had a thought that this could possibly be an arranged marriage. Sam told us a place where to get beer later in the evenings as paradise was getting weirder and weirder. When you ordered a beer it was now coming to you wrapped in newspaper, poured in a coffee cup and the bottle would then be hidden under the table.
... Managed to lock our passports/money/all important items in an electronic safe which it took 3 people and 5 hours to get out - good start!

Morning flight to Kochi was fine, we had curry for breakfast on the plane - Jim managed his spicy omelette, Laura didn't. We'd pre-booked our accommodation at Walton's Homestay and had organised an aiport ...
