I thought I better finish off my report of my trip to India last year. I seemed to forget about it.
We arrived in Madurai an old city in southern India and we stayed in the Heritage Hotel which had been the compound of a textile company and had been converted to a hotel. We were staying in a shared villa which was split up into about six rooms but it was still very large. The grounds were full of trees and we had to watch out for mosquitoes.
The pool was sunken and looked like a tank with steps on all four sides. There was also a very old (400 years) Banyan tree next to the main hotel building which was very large and full of ants!!!
