We went to Thiruvananthapuram 26 July 2016

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM, 26-7-2016 >> 1-8-2016

We went to Thiruvananthapuram for a brief visit during the last week of July 2016. This trip / visit was overdue. Last time we visited was 9 years ago !!

We left Chennai on 26th July by 22207 AC Express (dep: 4.30PM) 3AC coach. The train was almost empty !! With a non-stop run upto Salem, the train reached TVC by 06-45 AM on 27th. Ramani was waiting for us at the station with his car. We reached his home.

During this stay, I had severe cold and so I didn't move out of the house for most of the time. One evening, we walked a long distance to a temple and another evening to a supermarket.

On another evening, Vijaya went to SRI ANANTHA PADMANABHA SWAMI KOIL with Ramani.

We spent a very peaceful time in the company of Ramani and Padma Manni.

We left TVC on 31 July by 22208 AC express 3 AC (dep: 9-30PM). No crowd in the train - half empty ! We reached Chennai by 11.45 AM on 1st Aug and came home in OLA taxi.

A nice trip.
