Went for a Kerela trip which spanned from before Christmas to return after New Years. First city was Trivandrum. From the hotel we went for Kovalam beach. I was 12 when I visited this beach in 1974. Used to be the ultimate beach but I realised that the water was too rough, the sand very harsh on the knees and overall a big dissapointment.
Then we also went to the famous for KAPAD temple. The Padmanabh temple. For this we had to wear Lungis.
