Saturday, May 31
I’m pretty sure that I can speak for all of us when I say that one extra hour of sleep can really do you good! We slept in until nine o’clock this morning and it was luxurious. This morning’s breakfast was Keith’s last meal at the guest house, and we were lucky enough to be treated to Pouri bread as all of us really love it. We headed off to drop Keith at the airport afterwards. Sarah and I both wish him a safe flight and an amazing time in Agra, visiting the Taj Mahal.
For our Saturday we went back to the government-run store that we pillaged in our first week so we could get one last gift for our families in Canada. It was a successful venture. After a quick rest and lunch at the guest house, we went to an authentic Kollywood theatre to see a movie. Inside is wonderfully air-conditioned and scented, and there are assigned seats as opposed to the free-for-all we are used to at home. They have the volume up really loud because here it is okay to talk during the film, and the sound of cell phone ringtones adds to the movie’s soundtrack. The movie we saw was action, romance, suspense and a musical all thrown into one. It was fairly easy to follow, which was good because neither of us speaks a word of Tamil. It was a great way to spend an afternoon.
