Next morning I had been planning to change the course of my journey. It was pretty hot and I felt that some hilly place would be better, but the lack of good connectivity and distance discouraged me to move to any such place. Meanwhile, Raul, my Chilean roommate with whom I had some interesting conversation about South American culture and the popularity of Slumdog Millionaire there, was leaving for Mumbai. Hence, I too decided to move after the breakfast. It felt bad leaving Varkala because it was a pretty happening place with aesthetic beauty and an active beach culture. Anyway, I had to. I paid the oblivious, movie junkie owner for the extra day I stayed, got to the Railway Station and found a non-functional ATM. I bought some Tapioca chips at the Railway Station along with a sleeper ticket to Kanniyakumari for 120 bucks. Ernakulam-Kanniyakumari Express was pretty slow, unlike the other trains I had taken so far, as it was continuously giving passes to other trains. However, I had an empty coach post Trivandrum, and I slept peacefully. The Nagercoil-Knniyakumari patch had brilliant landscape with rugged mountains against the foreground of golden paddy fields and ponds filled with lotuses. Finally, I arrived at Kanniyakumari by 5 pm.
