A late night arrival after a long delayed flight from India. Due to snow in Munich what should have taken twelve hours took more than twenty.
More tomorrow but yes, we did find St.Thomas, his tomb , a variety of improbable relics and what remains of the oldest church in the world. We also stumbled across an ancient silk weaving village . The locals say it made the cloth for the shroud of Turin . This reeks of good marketing rather than having any semblance to historic accuracy . They charge accordingly.
The saintly Jain lady with the hospital for dogs and the school for blind girls are both doing well.
Angus can report that Indian McDonalds don't sell beef patties but do excellent chicken McNuggets.
