Something Fishy?

Something Fishy? Nothing better than picking out your own meal and having it cooked for you for dirt cheap. This was the selection outside of a restaurant in Varkala, India. Amazing place and a table with an amazing view. Definitely recommend visiting Varkala.

I happened to stumble across the ashram on my way down to Varkala in southern Kerala so I figured why not stop by and check it out. Little did I know that Amma was in town to celebrate her birthday so the ashram was packed and thousands of followers and pilgrims came from all over to pay their respects.

Amritapuri Bridge
