India Chennai Vegetarian

10 December 2005

The weekend!

First - a drama, my laptop started stuffing up badly, hitting certain keys would input 10 letters, some would trigger a log off, I couldnt log in at one point, however after returning late on Saturday night, I turn my laptop on and leave it on all night at the login screen, in the morning (5 a.m. as I am typing this) it seems to be working OK!
I was anxious all night that it was busted and that I wouldnt be able to update the page, hence waking up at 5 a.m. - confirming my status of super nerd.
I suspect some moisture got into the keyboard, maybe just the humidity, however I do recall that the cleaning staff (which in this hotel is 6 guys who come to clean your room) had serviced the room just before I noticed the problem.

Yeah - I know I am jumping around in timelines and confusing people, too bad, deal with it!

I am anxious to get going on an adventure to somewhere - I am not even sure where yet! And await a call from my Indian friends, now I am aware they dont make an early start on weekdays, so I had no idea what time to expect them, the call comes at about 12 noon - the days half over!
Not to worry, we are soon on our way, about a 40km drive to where we are going, which takes over 2 hours!

On the way we stop for lunch at a roadside restaurant, we are travelling along the coast and their are 'resorts' everywhere, including MGM Dizzyworld, and the even worse named kiddyland.
The driver refuses to sit with us at lunch, until I go over and get him and make him sit with us, and I try to talk to him, he seems pleased that I am teaching him english.

India-Chennai-Vegetarian - Lunch! I have a selection of breads only, I have been eating too much and am feeling slightly unwell due to 2 hours of traffic fumes.
