as with all CGH Earth sites this one excells in homely comforts and personal touches. Well appointed rooms are smaller than in most of the CGH Earth hotels but with lofty ceilings and simple furniture, tastefully chosen, the effect is spacious.

So we sat for a while, letting the sun warm us, as our eyes adjusted to the light once more, and noticed that the bottom of the Matrimandir had a purposely designed hole in the centre, another perfect design of the architecture which allowed the suns beam of light to penetrate all the way from the top, and then down through the ...
... wee place to have dinner in, part of the French area and having dinner outside on a roof garden is still a little odd at this time of year. It’s been raining on and off since we arrived in Tamil Nadu, the rains we due to be finishing off, so it’s more dry that wet, but only just, we woke up with plans to go sightseeing to find that it was tipping it down, raining cats and dogs, bucketing down or lashing ...
... holding champions. The next highest seeded pseudo-deities would be John, Mark, Luke and... Beavis (?). May be misremembering the last one. Hindu's have Shiva and Vishnu as the big nobs with Ganesha, Lakshmi, and Parvatti coming in second. God vs Brahma are the substrate upon which the rest of this mythology takes place. It seems incredibly obvious that the local Christians adapted, consciously or not, their faith to mimic that of their ...
