I am being a lazy blogger now but the last 3 days have been so bad I would rather not re live them in detail. Now I know you are probably thinking the Delhi belly finally struck me down, but no. Instead after Varkala we spent a day in Kochin and the last 2 days in Calicut. They are both cities and both horrid. The only things of note in the last 3 days were that a fortune teller told me that this year I would meet a lovely man and that I had a good heart. He accurately told me that my last relationship finished 2 months ago, but worringly said that I would have 4 children. Mind at this rate I will probably end up needing IVF to conceive and wind up with octuplets so who knows....He did say that my new man would have a good job, thats something at least.
The low lights of the last 3 days have been, 2 4 hour train journeys standing the entire way, on one trip directly outside pissy toilets. Experienced loads of problems trying to find cheap/available accomodation in Kochin and Calicut. In Calicut we were staying opposite the most dirty beach I have ever seen (including Sheerness), where the men were the most perverted that I have ever experienced.One man sat right near us looking at a porno for at least an hr and alternated between staring at us and then the porn. Sick to my stomach. Its boiling but if we reveal any skin it's like a red rag to a bull. Tulip left yesterday morning and there is literally nothing worth seeing in Calicut so I ended up watching discovery channel for 6 hours and tehre was a power cut so then I couldn't even do that.
I did visit a nice temple in Kochin and went to an art gallery so Kochin wasn't quite as bad as Calicut. Currently at Mumbai airport,I am so ready to move onto Bali now. I guess with this travel lark you must take the rough with the smooth xx
