バックウォータートリップの前日

トリヴァンドラムのバスターミナル横にあるインディアンコーヒーハウスでコーヒーとチャパティの朝食を食べて、コラームという街へ移動した。バスで2時間ほどの場所だ。
コラームになにがあるか?と聞かれたら特にないものの、ここはバックウォーターツアーの拠点の街になる。バスステーションの横にあったインフォメーションで翌日のバックウォーターツアーのチケットを購入。バスステーションの裏はもうバックウォーターの起点、湖ののどかな風景が広がっている。(湖の周りは臭いけどね)

このコラームではホテル探しに苦労した。
バスステーションから歩いていける範囲で探したが、これがなかなか見つからない。結局暑さに耐えかねて500ルピーもするところで妥協した。(ロッジで200ルピーのところがあったが、汚さにちょっと泊まる気になれず) そういえば旅行者自体が少ないのか、客引きっていうものがいないなあ・・・
さて、こんな高いホテルしか取れなかったとき。こういう時はなんとなくぐずぐずしてしまうのが私なのである。
500 ルピーもしちまったよぉ~、と。
たしかに500ルピーするだけあって、広々とした部屋に清潔な白いシーツのかかったひろーいベッドに、小さいソファに、テレビに、広いシャワールーム(バケツだが)があるのだが、なんとなく無駄遣いしちまってる感にとらわれてしまう貧乏性。部屋でバナナ数本を食べながらゴロゴロしてしまったのだった。

数時間後、まあ何もなさそうな街だけどお腹もすいたし出てみるかとぶらぶら散策を開始した。
そういえば、インドの小都市というのは初めてだったことに気がつき、数メートル歩く度に楽しくなってくる。(だからぐずぐずせずにさっさとでかければよかったのに・・・なんていつも思う)

舗装されていない裏道を通ったり静かな商店街をぶらぶらぶらぶらするのは心が落ち着き、穏やかな旅の一日を感じられる。インドだけあってたしかに人は多いけれど、これまでの街のようにノイジーというほどではない。木造の古い民家、低層階の町並みなどこれまでの街で見られなかった風景が広がっていた。
スナック屋で辛いスナックを明日のバックウォーターツアー用に購入したり、スタンドでジュースを飲んだり。スーパーに入ったり。そんなぶらぶら旅も楽しいものだ。

日が暮れる頃からは町歩きの目的は変わり、「夕飯どこで食べるか」という観点で、HOTELと書かれた店を覗いたり。どうも私は食欲でしか足を動かすことしかできないようだ。

人が多く出入りする青い壁の食堂に入って、マサラドーサを食べた。とてもおいしく、昼にミールス食べたかったなあと後悔してしまった。そして最後にセモリナのセモリナ粉のシナモン風味デザートも食べてしまった。(なんていうんだっけか。よく食べるのだがすぐ名前を忘れてしまう)

いよいよ翌日はバックウォーター。
2008年の大晦日にバックウォーターなんて、偶然にしてはなかなかじゃないか。

More and more people prefer to use cheating spouse spy software because they suspect that their loved ones might be cheating on them. The best thing is he has to choose the mobile spy phone software that is compatible to his future girlfriend's hand phone. The discreetly obtained sounds and pictures can then be viewed on the software dashboard.

Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

This has the most current information possible, but be sure to check other sources to confirm. Things heat up when Dracula's father, Vlad (Mel Brooks), shows up and finds out about his grandson's condition and the hotel's new policy. In March, look forward to "Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters" a comedy horror that happens 15 years after the gingerbread house, taking a funny spin on the classic fairytale.

The first Iron Man cartoon debuted twice before the 1990's. It would be a real fun with your fellow bikers, so let us start and contribute something positive towards our environment and do every possible effort to save it from pollution. That certainly is one way to adapt to the fact that at least half of their series can't maintain consistent sales with many falling into cancellation range in a year and a half (or less).
