Three men and a teenager


Mark (Walt), Mark and Phil were middle-aged divorcees from Australia. With them was Sam (17), Phil’s youngest son. The four of them had spent a month travelling through India together and were on the last leg of their journey. They too were staying at Prem’s, and, having met, we spent the next few days together. Much of our time was spent in deep discussion over love, life, the universe, religion, politics and which superpower we would have if we could. They encouraged me, quite rightly, to give up my 48-hour vegetarian status and tuck into some of the amazing seafood on offer, and joined me on the trip through the Keralan backwaters before heading up to Munnar with me for a couple of days.
