A Travellerspoint blog

End of the road

So to leap into the present day, here we are in our final week, washed up quite literally on a beach on the rough east coast of South India. I do not say this to elicit envy, given that said beach is liberally strewn with fishermen's excrement; and the hotel is under construction with none of the advertised facilities available - as we found out once we had paid and checked in - but after one shouting match too many in recent weeks, we are exhausted enough to probably stay here until we fly back next week (although you could say it is a little rash to trust this dishonest place to book us a taxi at 4am for the 3 hour drive to Chennai airport, but anyway...) But it has one great advantage - no-one else is daft enough to stay here, so we finally have the silence and solitude that in a country of 1.2 billion, we have come to crave...time to reflect and prepare for homecoming.

However, as one of the aforementioned non-functioning facilities is wifi, we won't be able to upload the rest of the blog as planned before returning, so expect a blitzkrieg at the end of the month as the final few entries are uploaded before we go back to work...which it may surprise anyone reading - especially our colleagues - to know that we are actually looking forward to!

In the meantime, wishing you all a great weekend - it feels pretty weird to know that Saudi airlines permitting, we'll be home for the next one!

Of course you can't wait to get back to the Elephant and it looks as though you've brought some sunshine back to London with you! Don't worry I haven't done half the things I was supposed to while you've been gone so there'll be plenty to do. (I don't think there are any major disasters for you to deal with though). Haven't caught up on all the blog yet but we're very much looking forward to seeing you and hearing about it all. Paul, Sandra and I will be in tomorrow but most of CBS will be at Dawson Day so you can let yourself in gently. Debi xx
