We then when to visit Patmanabhapuram Palace. Another of the amazingly awesome palaces in Kerala. After the Palace I got a mini tripod- Might help with camera mounting on cycle. Then we quickly checked out Big Bazar next to the cycle shop- just to enjoy their air conditioner, seriously hot outside. We then collected the cycle from the shop.They serviced the cycles for free.

Then what did we do? Roamed around for a while here and there, and decided to check out the KTDC ( Kerala Tourism Developement Corporation ) office to see if they can support us in some manner on the road. Sadly they were not interested. Government stuff !!!. Should have send them a proposal earlier it seems. We had already send them a mail. No replies obviously. Anyway,when we were about to leave the KTDC office we met an interesting person.He is Mr.Sundereshan Nair and he used to be round table boat rally champion. He also was the first person to drive the KTDC hovercraft.He is now retired. He gave us a lot of insights on tourists and tourism.
We then went to International Film Festival free show and watched a movie for about an hour. I finally managed to meet blucky there after calling him all day. Could not meet Kanju as he was called in sick. Alex-crack and AnandI have no idea where they were. Phone switched off.
Finally we got back to the house at around 8 pm having travelled around 30kms for the day. Tomorrow - Phase 2 the hills start ....
