Munnar, summer 08Friday, March 27, 2009
These pictures are almost a year old. Summer. Bright, bright sunshine, blue skies and unquenchable thirst. I am a Keralite and like it happens to so many people, I've never really seen Kerala the way my friends have. Kerala is home & when I go there I spend time with my folks & I'm back. That's it. But this trip was a bit different. A bunchof us from home headed to Munnar and we stayed at the Club Mahindra Munnar Resort. It was a beautiful piece of property in a beautiful place. While one part of the family took the car and headed out, my brother & me trekked down to the river through the tea estates. Will take you along a bit of our route through this picture trail.
The resort was well maintained and lush. I loved this view from the foyer. Open blue skies edged with the hills.We set out on our trek. I see this signage which has worn so beautifully & lets the sun through.
And here is where our trek gets interesting. My brother asks these boat men: what's on the other shore? Is there a hotel there? will they take us? There is no hotel but they agree to take us. We ask permission to row the boat in turns.
