When we got to chennai we were stopped at immigration. Apparently they have changed the visa rules and we weren't suppose to come back for 60 days. They changed the rules in December so we didn't know. That must have been the issue in Sri Lanka but none of them told us. Also no one told us what was going on in Chennai either but when we asked there they did tell us but in Sri lanka they just said 'give us a minute' and walked off. We were getting worried they would send us back to Sri lanka!
We were held there for 3 hours while they tried to sort it out. Luckily Kingfisher came and found us and stayed while it was sorted. We were lucky as we got out 10 minutes before our plane was boarding but this other women missed her flight so had to stay overnight.
In Bangalore we got our bags and were going to go outside when we decided to see if Kingfisher would take our bags. BIG MISTAKE. Once you enter departures in Bangalore you cant leave. We couldn't check in till 3am (it was 9pm) and couldn't leave. We asked the security on the doors, information and Kingfisher, no one could get us out. In the airport was one cafe and some hard chairs. Outside there was many restaurants and shops. We were there for 8 hours!
When we got to Goa we got a taxi to Patnam, found a place to stay and slept. We hadn't slept for 24hours.
