Trip to Kerala

Update: the photos are now online

This weekend I was in Kerala.

I was flown in by the company to give a training session in Trivandrum, and I got to stay there during the weekend.

On Friday, after the training, I watched Dhamaal, a Hindi comedy movie with the folks there. I went to bed at midnight, and woke up at 3 AM to go to Kanyakumari, India's southernmost point. This is where the waters of 3 oceans are mixing. Some Hindus worship this natural phenomena.
We arrived at 5AM and took a spot, waiting for the sun to rise. It took a bit of time, but that was OK. It was great.

After that, I went to town and saw a few sights and joined the brothers there. We went to a museum in the north of the city, and the garden there was great. I didn't expect such a nice garden, seriously. In the museum, they have beautiful ivory carvings that are worth the detour! In the evening, I did a short devo for the single brothers. The evangelist asked me to preach on Sunday morning, and it was time to get back to our guesthouse.

Sunday was church, then airplane. I reached back Mumbai and watched a movie with my flatmate. It was an older south Indian movie, with gaping plot holes the size of an Elephant... a true Indian movie ;)
