    ... to eat and knows great places for meals. Kovalum is on the coast and we are staying at a resort with 2 swimming pools, air conditioning, a view of the beach and lots of restaurants which accomodate tourists. The beach is sandy and the water is very warm. I have ice in my drink for the first time in 6 weeks.

    On Thursday there is a Hindu festival which only happens once a year. 500,000 women line ...

    ... through immigration. When I finally went to get a taxi the tail end of hurrican/typhoon Hudhud was in full flow in Chennai and the city was flooded. I waited another few hours to find a taxi brave enough to take me, he wished he hadn't though. He attacked one particularly flooded street with a good run up, the bow wave was up to the windscreen and he killed his taxi!

I believe he was speaking Malayalam, the language of Kerala. When my masseuses (Minnie, Sheeja and Gidu) are talking with each other, I like ...

    ... standing, was at one end of the beach where the men had hold of one end of the net. At the other end of the beach, there was another group of men, pulling on the other end of the net.

This pull, wait, pull, wait, pull, wait action went on for about an hour before the men had dragged their ...

    Varkala-cliff, sun, and backpackers...

    A travel blog entry by courtenay on Mar 09, 2013

    Varkala is a beach town, overrun with foreigners. It's a big backpacker place, the kind of town that people end up getting stuck in or returning to all the time. I didn't feel that drawn to it.

It is a street full of restaurants (all with the same menu) ...
