Flora Park Hotel, Dubai, 8:15
The hotel is very pleasant. I asked for some more water yesterday evening and got an armful of bottles. I am looking out the window at shapes and shadows.
We will get to the airport in plenty of time and everything will work smoothly. Our IndiGo flight will leave on time and the flight will be comfortable and pleasant.
Anib will meet us at Trivandrum airport and drive us to the house near the temple, where we will be staying. He will explain to us that we will have a dog called Bruno. An American yoga teacher rents the house every January and February and he and his wife adopted a stray puppy last year. It has stayed, and Molly the housekeeper looks after it when the house is empty.
As soon as we arrive it will bound up and settle in.
