    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.)

Got there eventually after telephoning the owner - bit of a shame we did not give up and find somewhere else - not the best rooms we have stayed in this trip!

A couple of boys included me in their circle, and I'm not sure who was copying who, but I danced for a while with them. Until someone got a bit rough and a disagreement started in one corner, I exited to stay out of it. The watched the rest of the festivities for a bit, until we got bored and tired so headed back to the bus. We drove through a crowd, who cheered us as we left. Very funny ...

    ... the 36 haripin curves and all I can say is thank god it's not a bus. All the way down to the retreat via Aniketh's car. The road signs count every hairpin turn, interestingly enough. Each turn you take it tells you 1/36 hairpin turns...2/36 hairpin turns...3/36 Hairpin turns...Thank you Tamil Nadu (the state I'm now touring), you have just answered number 56 of my 57 questions about this mountain. How many hairpin turns am I really taking? The Tamil Nadu gov't has also ...

    4 hour journey by bus past tons of tea plantations to nilgiri... We drove through the jungle/forest and only spotted elephants, spotted deer and monkeys. This evening we will be doing a game drive from 4-6- fingers crossed to see a leopard, tiger or panther. As there are 3 girls on the trip and the rooms are only ever twin for 2 people, every hotel ...

Living at such a close proximity to the jungle was an awesome experience and will be back soon, on a weekday ...
