Flowers and Gandhi

... and were very cheap! I bought some gorgeous big flowers for 10 rupees - I figured it was worth paying that to have them for 1 night! I also bought a flower necklace to wear that night. As I was walking round I thought that Gran would've loved to see the flowers here. I did contemplate going back at 3am the next morning to see the flowers market in all its glory but, as I was the only one up for it, I decided against it. After ...

The British Evils and Three Tits

... but terrible for Sellattamman who is left with the most epic case of sexual frustration. So epic that the fire in her loins can only be quenched with... buffalo blood (!??!!). So the priests kill a large bovine in order to prevent her going on a rampage. Well. I think Shiva dodged crazy there.

The huge gopurmans (gates) of the temple were, again, incredibly impressive and packed with detail and pigeons. But I spent the entire time trying to find evidence ...

... arrives in Madras, India as clerk to East India Company. The British East India Company was effectively an independent imperial power with its own army, policies and governance. Robert Clive was the general who brought India into the British Empire - introducing the British palate to spices and, above all, the world’s best teas.

Not the best week.

... a place to put our bags but this place was well and truly grim! It made the hotel Olivia look like the Ritz. But it was only for our bags. So we went to the Sri Maneesk temple a 6 hectare massive temple complex was pretty impressive however we couldn't take cameras in but we could our phones so got a few pictures on them anyway. There was a elephant in the temple who was blessing people! You handed the Elephant the money he took it in his trunk, tapped you on the head ...

Camp life and first 50!

... but i have now been to see a gynecologist (the only Dr in the village) and so far am rapidly approaching a total weight loss of 1 stone (not that i can see a difference).

I have also played my first cricket match in what must be the biggest cricket playing nation on earth. Didn't do to badly either. It was a short 10 over game, i came in #3 after about a over and ended the innings on 50 not out. My first international 50!!! and ...

    Walking distance to Meenakshi Temple

    Within walking distance to the Meenakshi Temple, this is a reasonably priced city business hotel. Strangely, hot water is only available 5-9am, the buffet breakfast is uninspiring, but the room was ok and bed comfy. The view from the roof top restaurant is very limited and the food only ok, so maybe better to spend the evening elsewhere.

    The location of the hotel was fantastic! The lobby was kitch but quite nice. Staff were freindly. However the room we had 313 was neat but old. With water damage on the walls, needing both hands to flush the toilet, sheets had stains and hair on them though they were crisp. Room was dark (were were facing a wall). We did see glimpses of other rooms and clearly were just happened to get the worst room in the hotel. Roof top terrace was lovely though the food was disappointing, cold and orders were wrong. Staff on the other hand were all friendly, accommodating, helpful. Ask to see several rooms. Breakfast is hearty and delicious though the restaurant has no natural light. Staff were friendly and very helpful.
