Occasionally when you travel on a budget you get a pleasant surprise and end up with a bit more than you bargained for, well this time the gods must have really been smiling on us because before we even left Singapore we were enjoying the benefits of Indian hospitality. The young man who checked our baggage in asked us if we would mind a seat …
... to the language and unwritten rules of the south-Indian society. Already we feel like time is slipping away as we have so many more things we want to do here and places we want to see! We just landed in Coimbatore and will be spending time here with a wonderful Indian family for Diwali. Will write more ...
... Colins, welcomed me into their home today, where also lives her parents and their 13 year old son, Calvin. He is so polite and well behaved that I'm left feeling jealous of his teachers. In the house I was staying in for the previous two nights lived the extended family as well. Grandma and granddad (George and Florence), their children, - Jennifer and Julius (on weekends), Jennifer's husband and their 4 month old baby boy Jenin. Packed housed and 2 bed 2 bathroom in each.
... another Vruti flare convincing an auto, unable to recognise 5am and 2am both as being night, to drive at break neck speeds for the same price as our first journey for Rs.120.
The fantastic day may have been slightly marred by the nights eventfulness but I'd rather think of it as another adventure in my never ending tale of India. Initially thought of as cheesy, I feel travelpod has aptly named my blog, lets see what my last week in CMC has to contribute to 'Neal's Great ...
... my new career as a teacher and other things. I always love spending time with this family. They took me to an incredible Rajasthani Thali restaurant and I stuffed myself to the absolute limit (suffering miserably the following day for all of the food I jammed down my throat my first day in India).
Preet dropped me off at my hotel and I caught a few hours of sleep before my early morning flight to Ahmedabad in Gujurat, home of Mahatma Gandhi.

Staff as before were very friendly, very helpful but our second stay was disappointing for two people who wanted to pamper ourselves. The Front desk, spa staff and Travel desk were exceptionally helpful as was our driver.
We were looking forward to our second stay at the Accord Metropolitan to end our three weeks in South India and pamper our selves. However service was quite poor. Towels were not replenished, one bathrobe for two women and when we called several time it still never came. We had one slipper then the second night the slipper was gone. We were looking forward to use the swimming pool which were told would be open again in January it was not for our December stay. The pool was closed, we said well at least the steam room is working. It was not working, the second evening both the steam room and the dry sauna were not working. The changing room is not clear so men and women had no privacy. We had an early flight but the phone kept ringing at 3 am for someone else...sigh.
We were asked if we had taken anything from the mini bar but there was no minibar it was empty...
Its too bad because the hotel was quite expensive for the both of us but we paid for the amenities of a three star hotel.
