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.

However, when Shaff – who for the record is Indian and whose mother is Hindu - approached the temple guard with the girls he was told that only Hindus living in India were allowed in. He vaguely protested to the guard about discrimination proclaiming ...
... 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 ...
It's 20.30 and I've just put mum and Louise on their train to the airport. Aside from the immense fun I had jumping off the moving train and then running alongside it I am now faced with acclimatising to being on my own again. It's easy to get comfortable with people, especially family but nevertheless I will be brave, adjust and relish the opportunities the next chapter offers me! Bangkok here I ...
