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.

I got bossy, as I could see Jim's back was hurting, told him to grab a seat anywhere, that I would stay with the bags and sit on the train step. I actually love traveling like this, can you imagine in Britain... ...
Today is the big Onam celebration where families come together to have a traditional Onam meal and also make these flower motifs to welcome in the mythical king associated with Onam.
Rani was up early preparing and making some of the same dishes that we cooked yesterday in preparation for a big party. Everyone was also in new saris and clothes. Unfortunately for us we were heading off again to Kovalam another small coastal town only about and 50 km away but and hour and ...
... shoot for Rasputin.
The plot is typically ludicrous, being somehow based on the legend of the Russian monk, yet also a modern-day rom-com featuring a dream sequence involving the girls from Baywatch playing American football. Yes, it's sure to be great.
Anyhoo it was great fun, and I earned a whopping 1000 Rupees for a day's work. This ...
