A top tastic hotel and I remained up a little later than planned due to excellent wifi (isn't Skype brilliant) and a tv showing suitably watchable silly films. Add to that a regular supply of healthy nutritious snacks and copious amounts of tea and this particular West Country chap wasn't in any great rush  to leave this morning. This room service lark's brilliant.

 I haven't completely slept my day away though and have done some fettling of the mighty Impulse. The chain was in need of some adjustment (and some oil) and I needed to get the head bearings tightened again. The road conditions thus far have shaken the poor old girl around a bit and it's not only the bike that's suffering.

Today unfortunately I also managed  to pull  my back ever so slightly but am hopeful that once back riding  it'll all settle down again. This resting thingy is clearly dangerous stuff.

The plan tomorrow will be to ride the coast at a leisurely pace and hopefully get within 50kms of Chennai then look to stop somewhere for the night . Having been to Chennai before - and not having a major love of big cities anyway - I'm hoping to ride through the city and maybe have a few days in lovely Pondicherry. This little former French colony is one of my favourite places in South India.

All plans - as always - subject to change  but I'll hopefully update soon in between croissants and coffee.
