Doctors at a private hospital in Thrissur, where Maria is undergoing treatment, have said that she will need an operation. Luis is struggling as he does not know the language and does not have enough money. There are some legal complications too.
The couple is visiting India for the third time. They were planning to reach Goa through Kerala by new year. They rented a bike as the roads in Kerala did not suit bicycle rides and because their journey was getting delayed. They were travelling from Kochi to Kozhikode.
Luis and Maria began their journey from home on April 3. They reached India after travelling through France, Italy, Slovakia, Croatia, Turkey, Georgia, Iran, Dubai and Oman.
