The orangish/red petals were left all over our room every morning, they were fragrant. The purple bushes at the airport have me baffled also.
Thanks, Candee

These were everywhere at the airport and roadsides. Probably something simple, but not for me LOL

The first one could be Quisqualis indica (Rangoon Creeper)

First one looks like an Ixora, but I don't know if Ixora is fragrant.The other is a bougainvillea like Tim said

Candee, the flowers of Quisqualis indica hangs downwards and has long slender tubes dnd its leaves are alternately arranged. The one in the pic on top of this thread could be Ixora.

Thanks everyone for the ID - the Ixora was picked every morn along with the orchids and placed throughout our room. The towels were made into swans, hearts and such and were always covered with these flowers.

I have seen some kids of my friends visiting India how they get amazed when they see stray cows, dogs and buffaloes. And also when they visit a zoo. They have never seen them before in flesh and blood, nor they can recognize them (some kids). They ask, 'what is that?'.

The second pic ... I didn't enlarge it when I last visited this thread. Yes, it is a coconut palm. Too familiar for me to have missed it. Nice to see a plane in the background.

I was just comparing how we react when we see a new thing! ;}

I know Dinu, I have had the experience of seeing something in new surroundings and suddenly behave like it is completely "greek" to me.
