Road to ILP-Trivandrum

I reached Trivandrum at around 11 am. Airport seemed very calm with hardly few people around. I collected my baggage and came out to see rickshaw drivers and taxi drivers bouncing on me. I somehow managed to get away from them. I enquired a few people around about the ‘Technopark’. Some of them suggested me to go to nearby ‘East Fort’ and board a bus to Technopark from there.
 
I carried my luggage for some distance, and decided rickshaw would be a better choice. I hired an auto, and I had to shell out 120 bucks for that.
 
Technopark is about 30 minutes drive from airport. Trivandrum is like a calm town rather than a city, with thick vegetation and thin population. Lots of tall coconut trees on either sides of the road.
All I did while traveling in auto was gazed at the place around. I started liking Trivandrum already.
 
I reached Technopark in about 30 minutes, the security personnel told me that Executive Hostel was next to Technopark on NH. I reached Executive Hostel at around 12.30 in the afternoon.

I had read in a blog that Trivandrum was the best place for ILP and Executive hostel, best place to stay. It sure was!!!
 
 Then the friendly auto driver brought my luggage to the reception. A quite hostel it was, reception personnel asked my name and then they handed me the keys to my room, they asked me to occupy #310, 3rd floor. I looked around, got into lift, then followed a person who carried my luggage into my room, we had a chat and he asked where I was from blah blah..and then he started briefing me things, he told me not to use any electrical appliances like iron box, laptops.. If we use them, theres a fuse which goes off and must pay a fine of 100 rupees, a bucket of hot water costs 5 rupees and will be available at ground floor blabla..
 
I had to share my room with another guy, who had come from Delhi. He was a nice fella. We had a brief talk for a while. I slightly started missing my Bangalore life, I went out to balcony. There was a TV at a corner in balcony, and I looked below to see  a nice pool, which had fishes and turtles in them. Maintenance of hostel was like 10 on 10. Hostel from my floor looked just like this.
