Kanyakumari is the “Land's End” of the Indian subcontinent and we were keen to dip our toes into where the Bay of Bengal meets the Indian Ocean and the Arabian Sea. It also has great spiritual significance to Hindus and there were a good few Indian tourists there, many keen to practise their English with us. We went out to two rocks about 60m apart and 500m out to sea in a ferry. The ferry looked decent enough but a wee flicker of doubt crossed our minds when we saw the locals frantically grabbing the life jackets as they got aboard. On the first rock there was a beautiful temple and on the second was a 133ft statue of a Tamil poet and saint. The scenery was so breathtaking and there was a cool breeze coming in of the ocean - Heaven! The 10km tailback on the bus back to Trivandrum that evening - Hell!
