Excellent kind hosts
Vinod and Joysma, with their sons Pierce and Viva were a treat by themselves! We wanted to live with an affectionate, warm middle class Malyalee family, and all our epectations were met and exceeded. Occasionally, one's westernised mindset had different epectations and standards. If you are looking for a place with impecable English, a strong water-pressure in your taps, a sanitised, pest-extinct, bland life in tastefull pastel shaded walls decorated with ethnic Indian handicrafts, manicured lawns and pretty gardens...look elsewhere. Vinod and family are the real thing...from the home-grown passion-fruit juice with home-made banana chips on arrival to the smiles and glow on their faces every time they see you, to little tips about going around, to Joysma's awesome cooking...we were absolutely blown away. Thank you, guys.
