Thiruvananthapuram early morning doors open on to a landing strip with jungle at perimeter fence. Taxi to Thiruvananthapuram capitol of Kerala. The first feeling is highly civilised: The tourist officials are aware and friendly. Taxi to Kovalam resort. Enlightening having only one, in modern terms exotic holiday, to see England v Rest of The World. Each Indian state is a whole lifetime. Kerala reveals much suddenly, as if one had missed almost everything for most of ones life. Kovalam is an elemental boardwalk lashed by the Arabian Sea with 5 meter waves and the weather is going to change to Monsoon. Ayuvedic graces India. Money underpins everything.
