... feeding because I felt like maybe I'd be paying for something that is injurious to the health of the elephants. The guide at the retreat explicitly told me no, that these were treated well and that most were retired from the religious ceremonies that Indians will tame elephants for (they are revered as god-like - think Ganesha - Elephant god in Hindu religion). I went to the elephant feeding and am actually so glad I did. What a truly interesting experience. They fed them big ...

... sick with a chest infection, but, on the recommendation of a nurse, I bought some antibiotics at a druggist and the pills have been clearing it up.

We arrived in Kalpetta on New Year's Eve and although we were invited to attend a local celebration, neither Genesta or I felt up to it. Truth be told, we didn't even make it to the count down and were asleep by 10pm.

Kalpetta is settled in a lush mountain range, where tea, coffee, beetle ...

As we all sat on the verandah the subject came uo about how John and Emily might spend some time alone together before she went off to continue her cycles around the world.

Not that I feel to leave this lovely place though, and with too much emotion I had to slip off to my room for a little cry unseen by all. ...

    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.)
