Sri Lanka to India

Filed under: General — Tags: — admin @ 6:33 am

From West Sri Lanka to West India.

I spent a bit of time waiting for my visa to India in Colombo, then I went to Negombo for about 4 days. I spent most of my time in Negombo bicycling around the town and checking out the beach about 3 times a day.

So finally I get to go to India for the third time. I was utterly shocked when I saw the plane. It was a small twin-engined thing. EEEK! But it was ok. It got us to India despite being two hours late. I arrived In Madurai and rested up for a couple of days before heading to Trivandrum in Kerala, then on to Varkala, up the coast a bit.

I am staying on the cliff above the beach. This morning I took the camera for a walk and got some shots of the fishermen coming in through the surf. These guys nearly got smashed.

But luckily they missed the big one and happened to find a little wave to come in on. Crazy stuff.

There were all these guru-looking dudes dispensing blessings or something to the pilgrims. Maybe they were brahmins or holy men. I have no idea.

I have not seen many birds yet. But I have been in cities and a beach. These are all I have seen so far.
