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.

Thus, acording to Hindu belief, people are here on earth to perform rituals. Caste derives from one's role in the ritual of sacrifice and the degree of purity one must have to perform that role. Brahmins, at the top of the purity ladder, lead the most restricted lives. They must be vegetarian, wear only white, unstitched clothing, and bathe often. In their ritual role they take on the impurities of the other castes. At the other end, the untouchables, perform the ...
... as elsewhere but seem this time to be less hassle. After a small delay we are on our way. After take off, still feeling a sense of dread I might add, we soon clear Bombay and the smog disappeared. Quite a contrast to our landing here a few days ago. Today I can see the landscape clearly. Flying over the patchwork of agricultural land, the green forests and mountains is a joy. No drama with ...

In spite of sleep deprivation we have had a good few days in Chennai catching up with the Sports and Education Project here. The project works in three slum communities
to get school drop-outs back in to school and support them with their education
to ensure they finish it and get placed in further education or jobs. The football training each morning is a vital part of this, ...

pretty sight. Various excavations in the sea have revealed that there
are remains of walls (dating to the Pallava period) under water and the
layout suggests that they belong to several temples!Just
