Chillum is a foul clay pipe like thing which is used for smoking anything you can think of, but usualy ilegal substances.
I repeatedly tolf Dod and Mama that gokarn is a helhole full of simpering.aging hippies who have ‘found themselves’ (i.e dossing) and natives trying to ingratiate themselves and copy the hippies-all of then chanting ‘namaste’ form sun up to sun down.
The town was a pit of decrepitude and filth (though most town in india are dirty, it seemdd like nice dirt in ohter placed). the beach leading out of the town is also dirty and the sea not much to write home about-all in all a place to be avoided at all cost.
Palolem on the other hand is a haven of peace and tranquility with a crescent of golden sand and crystal blue sea-bliss.
Hope you enjot hampi-we did. though a little hot we enjoyed walking round the many miles of ruins and eating mangoes. Riner (a germand we were travelling with) swam in the river, but i wouldn’t recomment it!
Are the corracles still 10 rupees each? or did the bus drop you at the correct drop of pont!
Try out the mango cafe, under a huge mango tree by the river.
Aftre much debating the wedding has been planned for the 06/03/06 (sorry pinky-i know you have got the 18th april off-maybe keep that as a shopping day!) granny is possibly coming down to richards in the car and then getting driven over by richard (he has said he will find something to do as he doesn’t want to intrude but i’ve told granny he is welcome if he wants to come) and then back up, so she will come donw for the day, having visited rosemary on the way down. as to the others, bills is flying back from south america just for the pleasure of 10 mins in a reg. office!!!! and the rest of the gibbs clan will be charging down en mass (mostly staying at hotels due to the elderly contingency) i of course told granny she would be mroe that welcome to stay either with us or at the homestead but she feel she should come for the day.
I am going to have a dress made (hopefully by gill) to go over the expanding tum (non of mine fit) we will look in c&a fabric at the weekend.
Are you getting back on the friday night at 12am? if so then we can pick you up no probs.
Well, enjoy hampi-see you soon
