Udupi visit

Nice post by Sujatha Desikan on his Udupi Visit.

I commented like this:  (edited here in totality)

Nice! I did this trip during May 2009 (mistake!, it was 2010). Clubbed with Kukke Subramanya. It is just 12 kms from the NH after Sakleshpur. Traffic slows down a lot in that area. At Malpe beach we paid like 300 for a family to visit St Marys Island. The boat guy gave us all, each, a can of soda! We stayed @ Kidiyur Lodge, decent and is known for its Neer Dosa (It is made of Aapam flour, plain rice with coconut mash - lovely with Veg and non Veg). You dont get rooms from the temple sathirams it seems as there are people staying on an on forever there. We saw a ritual in the evening, where they bring flowers and water from a well, on an elephant.

Here is my original post.
