Kerala SOL #8


We arrived at the humid airport and saw our name on a sign. We walked to the driver and were taken to our beautiful hotel. The humidity made my hair go poof. I hate that.

We were welcomed by coconut water and shell necklaces. I loved this place. A big Christmas tree sat in the middle of the lobby, well that made sense, but wait, this was India.

Then, we were in a golf cart, driving to the cottage-ish place we would stay for the next two days. It was beautiful. I loved it, we walked into our cottage which had an amazing view of the ocean. Mom and I walked down to the small beach and looked for shells. After finding a bunch and bringing them back to the room, we went to lunch. A fantastic lunch was found in the buffet of Dosa, Idli, Sambar and more. Dosa is a salty crepe thing, Idli is steamed rice cake and Sambar is a lentil soup.

We went to sleep around 6:00 because of jet lag and awoke around 5:00 in the morning. Mom made tea and we sat outside drinking it while listening to prayers from a nearby Muslim Mosque. After we walked in and encountered a cockroach. I sat, terrified on the bed while Mom called someone. They arrived and squished it. Soon after Mom and I got ready to leave. We weren't leaving the hotel but we were going somewhere.

While we had a lot more fun in Kerala than I described, that's all I will tell you for now.
Notice how I never mentioned my brother or father, well they weren't with us while these events occurred. But we were leaving to go pick them up…
