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.)

After getting a slightly cleaner room, we ordered lunch from the hotel restaurant. With both of us having been sick lately, ...
... bus?' 'Na central bus stand bhai' he smirked back...wrong bus stand beltin! tuk tuk time....arriving at the correct bus stand, we saw a bus leaving, asking the female conductor 'Mudumalai?', she nodded, so we hopped on the moving bus and the driver then said 'Hassan!'
Was he a fan of the Bangladesh captain Shakib? No it appeared we'd been given another bum steer and the bus was heading for the town of ...
