The planet Earth is a strange and wonderful place, as a matter of fact… Real fact, not just the matter concerning facts but, yes, the facts of the matter are thus, it’s the only place we (has humans) know… or think we know, anyway… It’s a cool place for us.
This past week we went to Kovalam, Kerala which is kind of a bum-fuck tourist village with lots of half neked euro-slobs hanging about spending lots of money and treating the locals like second-classers but we didn’t go there for that, we went there for the ride.
Yes, we rode our bikes there, a 28km round trip through all the environs that Kerala has to offer and it was an incredible ride, in every sence of the word incredible!
We made our way along the coast and we got the most amazing greatings from almost every single person we came within a few feet from. Both of us had the sore-mouth-grins and by the time we got to Vizhinjam, the little fishing village on the south side of Kovalam, we felt like we’d said hello to a huge portion of the South Hindustani population.
We stayed the night at the state run tourist guest-house, ate 3 wonderful meals, got back on the bikes and rode back to Akkulam…
That’s it, just a beautiful time in a wonderful place.
