Monday March 2nd

A day to relax! As we are waiting for the whole global group of 30 people to arrive here, we have a day off today. After a lovely breakfast a group of us headed for a walk and a swim on the beach, and we came across a group of community nursing students. They were really sweet and posed for us a for some beautiful pictures on the beach. We felt like we were doing a fashion shoot on the beach!

My first impressions from India have been nothing but positive – happy and helpful people, great food: i’ve tried about 10 curries from the lunch and dinner buffet (which they told me were mild but my mouth was on fire for ages!) plus at least 15 different desserts (kid you not).Pink-sunset-by-Leela-Hotel-pool

I’ve spend this relaxing day swimming in the warm ocean and even warmer hill-top infinity pool while testing the local mojito offering, participated in a yoga session, watched local dance performance and now a pop band – while listening a Bollywood beach disco on the background. What an interesting day! Can’t really wait to see what tomorrow bring alongs….Kerala-dance
