Press interviews approaching Thoothukudi

Reporters and various other media were camped out at an underpass further along to shield themselves from the rain.Media walk with Bobby

It became apparent that we would not get to them before Bobby needed his break so we called them to meet us where we had stopped.


After Bobby had started walking into town, Shelin met with us again and we had a motorcycle escort from Lakshmi Narayan of Saksham.

By the time we arrived in town it would be difficult to go too much further through the narrow streets as the bus got stuck and I got separated from Bobby using up valuable time.

We decided to stay in town overnight and sought permission to stay in the grounds of the famous Our Lady of the Snows Shrine Basilica which was granted.
