From the soft silver sands of Ram Jula in Rishikesh (North India) we headed south to the beachers of Chennai (Madras), and then further south to Rameshwaram, a holy site at the end of a long sandy peninsula near Sri Lanka.
This southern region is tropical with coconut palms, bananas and tamarind. The weather has been overcast and warm.
Many pilgrims come to Rameshwaram to seek blessings and bath in the sea, which is thought of as sacred.
Our next journey will be to Madurai and then onward to Kanyekumari for Xmas at the bottom of India … follow us there!
