Kanyakumari. Land's End. The tip of the Indian subcontinent. Stand at the southernmost point here, where the Arabian sea, Indian Ocean and Bay of Bengal converge, and you're staring straight down at Antarctica. It's here, on the April Full Moon day, that you can observe a unique celestial phenomenon (every guide refers to this "unique celestial phenomenon", so the phrase is kind of ingrained in my brain now), the simultaneous sunset and moonrise over the ocean - a magical sight. Only I couldn't tell you, because I rearranged my itinerary and travelled 13 hours to find Kanyakumari completely overcast.
