    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.)

The rhythm was incredible, and the people playing were so passionate and lost in the beat. Some young boys started dancing, and before long they had a group of people jumping and shaking around. Of course, I couldn't help but join them (at the insistence of a couple of ...

    ... that we have trash facilitators coming around to pick up our garbage. We have garbage bins. We have huge business garbage dumps. We have landfills. Where are you India government!!!!?
