It’s hard to believe that I have been back in Kuwait for over 3 months. Catherine arrives in Kuwait on January 25th and we depart on the 27th for Kozhikode, India. Kozhikode is the home city of two work colleagues I have met while in Kuwait. By coincidence, my colleagues Jafar and Kabeer will be at home for a few days prior to when Catherine and I will be starting our tour so we decided to go to India a bit earlier than originally planned to visit with them and their families and see a bit more of that part of the country before heading off to Bangalore to join up with the rest of the organized tour group.
I made the above map using Google Maps. It shows the route that we will be following with our tour group. We depart from Bangalore on February 3 and end up in Chennai on February 18. Modes of transportation will range from motor coach to trains to house boats.
