We woke late for breakfast and packed all our stuff up. We then organised a taxi to Kovalam, some 70km south of Varkala. Yousef's current employer, Richard, had very kindly offered us his holiday house in Kovalam which was very generous! After phoning for instructions we made our way to where we thought the house was and were greeted by a very grand looking cottage. Not until the agent turned up with the key could we believe it! We left our stuff in the house and then went for a walk to the other beaches in the area, found a great restaurant and ate another massive curry! Tired from the long walk we returned home and had a few beers and some cards on the veranda!
