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. Menus are a bit restricted but anything can be obtained just by asking. That goes for food, help, shopping, and local knowledge. We caught up on some late shopping, watched a festival, chatted about the virtues of Kerelan food versus Chettinad cuisine and came away feeling refreshed and ready for the world

... a country which is not as developed as back home, and where people don’t have access to mediation, support systems and the like, and it seems that self-restraint and moral codes don’t exits to the same levels that we are used to as luxuries of our society back home.

We ate a 100% wheat free, gluten free Vegan thali here yesterday and I can say that it ...
There are parts of this city where you would be forgiven for thinking that you are on a boulevard by the sea in a European town or city, the architecture is distinctly colonial for several streets between the shore and a canal, don't let the idea of a canal put a pretty tree lined/bird singing/clear water kind of image in your mind, this is India, the canal is pretty much an open sewer and smells like one too, for ...
... up a local vegetarian “hotel” for lunch I got sucked into their “special” meal. I didn't regret it, but I think my stomach now has stretch marks. It certainly felt like giving birth later on the next morning. No need to thank me for that image. On that note it's interesting that I haven't suffered the infamous Indian ring sting. The food has been spicy, but ...
... t want to stay too long. We headed back to out hotel and spent the afternoon wandering the local streets. We only went into one shop, and were browbeaten into buying a pashmina each! After that I was reluctant to go into any more shops.... Walking around the city gave me my first real experience of India. The amazing crowds, smells, and sound were quite overwhelming. The amount of rubbish was amazing - what used to be a canal through town was a foul smelling clogged up drain ...
