And therein lies the rub


We all decided to try out ayurvedic massage yesterday at our homestay in the unfortunately named Pooppally Junction (no relation to the Poopada hotel in Munnar). This massage was quite different from the previous Swedish or Thai varieties that I have had. Ayurvedic herbs and oils were rubbed with vigor into my body forcing relaxation into every pore. I did feel quite relaxed at the end of it, but had a hell of a time getting the oil out in the shower.

The food in the Pooppally homestay has been amazing. It is all local Kerelan cuisine prepared with love by our hosts.

Tomorrow, the gang and I head out on a two day houseboat tour of the backwaters. I will probably be offline for the next couple of days.
