Journal Entry:
Still feeling worn out and unmotivated, but a little better. I woke up early and started getting ready to go to Mamallapuram. Then while I was looking through the guide book I realized it was a bad plan. I want to be in Madurai Saturday. That means I would probably only have a half day in Mamallapuram for two days of travel (Mamallapuram is on the rail line)! So came up with a new plan. Tomorrow I'll do a day trip down to Mamallapuram, then on Friday I'll catch an overnight train to Madurai. So today I need to get tickets.

In the late afternoon I had my daily hour on the internet, then had a huge, very spicy, and not very good meal. By the time I'd walked back to the hotel I felt like I had eaten a load of bricks. But still feeling at peace with myself if a little edgy.
