Greetings from Ooty! We're currently sitting in candlelight eating cheese and tomato sandwiches. A tree fell on the power line outside the guesthouse this afternoon, which gives you a clue as to the weather conditions up here in the hills- cloudy, windy, rainy and cold! We couldn't get our heads round it when we first arrived, especially when we …

Today I had a unexpectedly remarkable day, so I will tell about it before going back in time to fill in a bit about the somewhat less interesting week that I had.

I woke up early this morning with the intention of going to the train station when it opened at 08:00. Well, let me back up for a minute: After …

We've taken another long weekend to allow us time to get to Ooty, a hillstation in the Western Ghats, around 10 hours away by which ever means of transport you choose. Fortunately, the bus played us a delightfully impossible to understand, ear drum-burstingly-loud bollywood that seemed to involve lots of peolpe setting themselves on fire, getting …

To my previous update, my friend Art commented "REPAIR your socks?" To this I say: Any man who throws away an entire pair of socks just because of a small hole in one of them - is wasteful. And in a place like India, where it is so cheap to have them repaired, it is unforgivable. So yes, dear Arthur, I do have the …

Various observations / comments:

The owner of my guest house told me that the tax collector had come around - to collect money for garbage removal. The owner told the tax collector, "But we don't have any proper garbage removal service!" Just as she was saying this, the elderly woman street sweeper had just finished sweeping the area in …

    Frustrating Annoyances

    No working hot water, which is pretty much a necessity when the temperature is freezing and you can see your own breath. No heating, of any sort, except our own bodies. I got a feverish chill. One plug point, which seemed to not work occasionally. A major powercut occured, which in itself isn't a fault with the guesthouse, but we were simply given candles and matches at first, without even a candle holder. On the plus sides, and there are many, breakfast was fantastic. So warming, after a cold night. A trek was organised at a very reasonable price by the guesthouse owner, who is also very nice. The location was very good, set back from the busy part of town, but only a few minutes walk from the train/bus stations. It could have been excellent, but the frustrating setbacks mean this one is just about satisfactory.

    Probably the best value for money place in Ooty and a very good budget option. Nice view of the lake and surroundings; not TOO close to the (noisy) town, but not too far either, which is good for shopping and eating. My room was very cozy, clean and comfortable. The environment at the guesthouse is also very conducive to interacting with other guests, which is very useful for getting information about other destinations in India - aside from providing good company.
