we were fortunate to have been able to get several night's lodging at deb's kaiya house on a recent trip to southern india. after enduring the arduous travel and often dreadful service of so much of southern india, deb's place offered a breath of fresh air and civility.
despite showing up at an indecent hour, due to an early train arrival in varkala, we were welcomed by deb to her stylish, beautifully decorated bed and breakfast. she proceeded to dote on us for the next couple of days. this included a much appreciated introductory walking tour of varkala, great breakfasts and laundry service.
I can not tell you how great it was to get some genuine hospitality after three weeks of the strains of travel in india.
