After so many days of go go go, we spent a well deserved rest day at the gorgeous Botanical Gardens in Ooty, celebrated Calvin's birthday, and even went for a long walk in the hills. It's been a while since we have been able to actually go for a peaceful walk and get some proper exercise!
After the palaces of Mysore it was off to the hill station of Ooty. The weather was a welcome relief and it felt like a nice fall day in Canada. Ooty at over 2200m in elevation escapes the heat of the lowlands and makes it a nice holiday location. We walked around the surrounding area and ate home made chocolate to pass the time. The evenings were cool but quite pleasant (we had a piping hot shower in the hotel). After Siva leaving us, we are back on our own again. It was a little sad to say goodbye as it was great having her with us over the last month or so.
