Journal Entry:
I slept in until around ten when the power failed. Without the fan it quickly got too hot to sleep. I went to the beach for a few hours - windy again, I wonder if it's the windy season now. Around three I went for a big lunch at a new restaurant - I had the paneer butter masala, it was different, but very good (also very spicy - I leave worried that I might pay for it later). As I'm walking back to my room through the maze of paths I run into Amy! I knew she had left Madurai but hadn't heard from her, so didn't expect to see her. Back at the hotel we hang out a talk for a while. I agree to stay here another day then she is going to leave with me to go up to Kollam, Alapahluzha and Kochi on Tuesday. We head back to the beach for a couple hours then go back to the hotel to change. We tried to go watch movie but the sound quality was horrible and we had too much to talk about - so we gave up. We finished off the night with a short walk on the beach.
