Up early again, and we've got a hard core day ahead, not sure where it'll end or where we're going to stay tonight, we'll have to wait and see!!!!

First off we're on the ferry to Kottayam at 7:30 this morning for a two hourer , at the time we  weren't sure of the next move, either a house boat fore 24 hours or a train further on. Straight into a couple of agents at Kottayam to find out about prices for a boat and not to put too fine a point on it , they're all wankers!!! Just wanting our money and not interested in answering our questions, not even bothering to in some cases, maybe 6000 rupees isn't much to them  but it is to us and we want some info!!!! In the end we decide against it get in a tuk tuk to the train station, train to Ernakulam, tuk tuk to the ferry jetty , and a ferry to Vipeen island, to get a tuk tuk to Charai beach ( breath).

Maybe we'll stay here.... up and down the road looking at places to stay but the whole place is full or charging what we now know is a ridiculous amout of money for holes!! Ria was even shown a room in the staff quarters with a mud floor, filth everywhere and they wanted 500 rupes, ridiculous!!! Anyway no time to get down hartened it's still only 3 so back on a bus to Ernaculam where we meet a really nice Keralan guy who tells us all about India, really interesting.

Right off at Eraculam and the plan now is to get to Thrissur, only a couple of hours on the train, are we explorers or what!!!! I hear they have phants there!!!!!!!!!!!!
