We had a large room on the first floor of the Keralan bungalow, with a lovely sitting out area on the verandah, overlooking the garden and coffee bushes. Our hosts were friendly and happy to chat. Meals were home cooked and fresh, and introduced us to several local delicacies, served in an attractive eating area. We visited Kanthampara waterfalls (Meenmuthy Falls has been closed.)

Both struck up a conversation with me while I waited. One couple was an English and in their 60s – backpacking after retirement – and the other was a Pakastani couple in their 40/50s traveling more opulently. The British couple were cheery and decidedly happy about their ...
... we started the game drive, David and I checked into and then promptly out of our room. Our bathroom (including the toilet seat) was covered in a layer of water, the bed sheets had remnants of the last guest's body hair, and the much needed ceiling fan made a loud noise while turned on. After getting a slightly cleaner room, we ordered lunch from the hotel restaurant. With both of us having been sick lately, ...

Heading straight for a morning nap, we bumped into our gracious guesthouse manageress on the way, and she asked what time we'd be leaving later, '12 o'clock' I confirmed. 'Beltin' she ...
