Feeling very sad, and a touch hungover, we left Richard's amazing cottage after giving it a good tidy and a clean and headed back to the bus stand to get a bus to Trivandrum. In trivandrum we hiked to a restaurant near the train station and had a massive meal in preparation for the journey. The restaurant was a spiral shape with all the tables arranged around the outside and the centre as a spiral ramp. The food was very good and we rolled onto the train for the 16 hour ride! The train was as good as they all have been, pictures are better than words but each person gets a bunk bed which is about 6 feet long and 2 feet wide and they are pretty comfortable, unless you happen to be 6"4' and beside the door. I can still see the bruises!!
