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.)

... realizing what I've missing in India. The beauty of nature.

I had been craving something like this, not knowing that this was the source of my unrest. I feel like I saw another face of India. The face that was so much more to my liking. This is the India I ...
... 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, ...
... for Chell, as we go on the thrill ride, looking out at every corner, behind every tree and shrub.
The view at the dam was amazing as well, with a few localites, taking a dip in the cool waters.
While all of us were enjoying our time in the reserve, my sub-conscious was silently making plans for a future visit and stay in one of the resorts within the reserve, to enjoy the day and night treks as well as deeper safaris available.
Hope you had a nice journey with ...
