India must love us since it wants us to stay. We have made it across the country with out any major hickups until the evening we are supposed to depart. Our flight from Kochi to Mumbai was delayed enough that we would not have made the connecting flight and therefore needed to stay an extra day here. They put us up in a fancy hotel by the airport. It's the nicest place we have had in India. It will also give us the whole month here as we had arrived on the ninth and will be leaving on the ninth... hopefully.
Ironically we thought this might be the quietest place we were to stay in all of India until the fireworks started outside our window.
