Varkala

First Days in India...

From Sri Lanka, I flew into Trivandum, in Kerala. A bunch of friends from the United States told me what a fun town Varkala is. Varkala is a cliff-side town that borders the Indian Ocean. It is located in Kerala, the very Southern part of India on the West Coast, which meant, that the town made for incredible sunsets as the sun sank down over the ocean.

At the airport, I met a really cool French girl named Cecile. She and I traveled together to Varkala together by public bus, which was a cheap and really interesting experience. While in Varkala, we met an English girl named Anna, who decided to travel with us.

We spent a few fun days on the beach (one was black sand), going on walks, and having awesome seafood meals on the cliff overlooking the ocean.

It was absolutely picturesque...and the tiger prawns were delicious! They even had a fresh marlin that had just been caught that was the size of a table...it was incredible!!

Even a dog we found on the beach enjoyed the seafood :)

Then we got henna done by an artisan.

On the last day or so, we all met Adrian, a fellow Englishman who joined our traveling group, and our 3 became a foursome. Adrian's stories made the next couple of weeks an absolute treasure. That kid is such a riot!
