Day five: Freeday!

Fruit sell­er on Lighthouse Beach in Kovalam is qui­et for a change.

Traveling is like toi­let paper: The clos­er you get to the end the quick­er it runs out.” — Chrissy after her friend Vanina.

What was in a sense my busiest day so far is the day I have the least to write about and is also the day I took the most pic­tures. Fewer words, more images. Trivandrum and Kovalam by rick­shaw, an Om tat­too on the inner right ankle, rit­u­al prayer (puja) to the Divine Mother, and I wore local cloth­ing — a nice change from my dai­ly cos­tume of white T‑shirt.

Our rick­shaw dri­ver took us for some cheap, tasty, spicy break­fast on the way to town.

A fam­i­ly at the beach park­ing lot avoid the camera.

Corinne and Lily care­ful­ly choose our first non-ashram lunch.
