Snapshot: Reached Kanyakumari, Southern Tip of India, Heading North Now

6 May 2013

I reached the southern tip of India at Kanyakumari! It’s all the way north from here to Kashmir ๐Ÿ™‚

I crossed into Kerala and had fun on the hilly roads with lots of twists and turns. The driving is crazy but nothing I haven’t seen in other countries. It’s all about anticipating whether that auto-rickshaw is going to keep going straight or make a random u-turn. I can say that to ride in India, one needs a loud horn, good reflexes and a bucket of swear words. Use all liberally ๐Ÿ˜‰

I rode past congested Kochi and met up with an old Kodai School friend, John Thomas, who’s now a history professor. It’s good to catch up and since he studied in Delhi, he’s putting me in touch with contacts for points north.
