Things are crazy! last night we sat in a village as the sun was setting wondering where we was going to camp.....This morning we woke up having breakfast with father something or other in his vicarage at an all boys orphanage. This is just a little bit of how random this trip is becoming! The riding stays ok, tiring and hot, the last few days since chitoor has seen some beautifull mountains and up and down hills, the roads are deterioting and right now as we speak we are in desert country, nothing around except industrial chimenys and broken slabs on the road.... and a dead guy today actually, thrown out his truck after smashing into another.

Well we spent christmas in style this year in a small village/backpacker heaven called Mamallumpuram (spelt something like that). We had booked a hotel but yet agian it turned out to be a dump so we found a very nice hotel as a treat for christmas. It cost about 5 times what we would normally pay but it was air conditioned, had 24 hour hot water, a TV with english language mive chanells and we had use of the hotel pool. On arrival we put up our 4 inch tall christmas tree that Racheal had bought, put up the tinsel and prepaired christmas stokings that we made out of pillow cases. We weren't going to let this christmas go by un-noticed! Mamalumpuram is right on the beach and is very touristy. It was a tottal cultuer ... read more
