        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.)

        Our second homestay was Aranyakam, a homestay in a Keralyan bungalow surrounded by a coffee plantation. The veranda was a perfect spot to settle with a book.

        After lunch we drove to Kanthampara waterfall where we went walking, and was pretty, but not as …

        Wayanard: elephants, walks, islands and art

        ... they are all crooks around here and I don't speak Hindi
        well enough to get a local price. In the end the restaurant owner
        said he knew someone who took us there for 25 which was good. The
        drive to Wayanard was lovely. We went through elephant reserves and
        up the mountain through the forest. We had to stop and register as we
        went across a boarder which took forever but overall it went well. We
        had asked to be dropped at the tourist office which it ...

        T - 17 days: No bike, no plan and a concerned clan

        ... took joy in pointing out that we did not have a detailed plan, something which signaled a failed trip even before we had started. Our response that not having a fixed plan was actually our plan so that we could change our routes, fell on deaf ears. Pradeep uncle had driven to Leh before and his words did have an effect on Dad and Tharun's parents, Leela aunty and Anto Uncle. Both Tharun and I hoped that Pradeep uncle's comments don't make our parents ...

        ... along the road with our eyes peeled for wildlife. We saw more birds (including peacocks nesting in trees), wild boar, bison, mongoose - alas no elephants or tigers. I didn't take many photos as I wanted to spend the time looking at the animals, rather then my camera. We were the only guests in the lodge overnight and we were served a massive spread of Indian vegetarian food. I'm staring down the barrel of a stringent diet when I return to New Zealand after all the eating I've been ...

I don't see you!!!!! The people want to do good and want to have an infrastructure that supports them. WHERE ARE YOU??? Ok. End of gripe for the moment.

        The beauty of the hills is amazing to behold. No trash. No honking (except on hairpin turns where it's acceptable.), and as we float down ...
