Visiting sumithra in Trivandrum

As I haven't seen Sumithra for quite some time after see left Germany for US and then back to India I wanted to see her again and soon enough I took off for a long weekend and was going down south to Trivandrum by a night train. I didn't sleep that well the first time but one can get quite used to it. The change in landscape is quite dramatic: You go to sleep in the semi arid dry Tamilnadu and you wake up in a humid forested and green landscape with lots of coconut trees, palms, banana plants and rubber only interrupted by rice fields. Trivandrum was very nice apart from meeting Sumithra and her family (Nandakumar and the baby Shyama) it had a very intersting palace museum. Nandu took me out to padmanabhapuram palace -- an ancient Keralan temple and to Kovalam beach. Both very enjoyable.
