    Our two night stay were very comfortable. The hotel set high in the western Ghat mountains close to the Periyar National Park was set back from the bustle of the town. Our room, with large balcony overlooked the forest and we were surprised by a visit of a troop of black monkeys in the nearby trees one afternoon. Grounds were clean and well laid out but we felt the pool was a little cool to swim. Food was buffet style and very good quality. However the hotel ran out of beers during our stay and had to go out to get more. Didn't plan for a British tour.

We cruised across Lake Vembanad which was like a millpond passing traditional boat …

    Wise because they approached Michel from behind while he waited for me on a bench. Fast because they rapidly stole a bag of cookies from ...

    ... We settle in, and then head over to the restaurant for dinner. In honour of the uniquely fabulous Keralan people I opt for a beef ularthiyathu, which is a dry and spicy dish while Coman, fancying a bit of a change orders a mildly disappointing mushroom pasta.  It's been a long day and we have a 6am start for a boat safari in the morning, so we hit the sack soon after 10pm, the sounds of local wildlife and general jungle chatter sending us to sleep.  But oh, those damn ...
