Munnar, part 2

(Munnar, part 1.) Photos from the plantation trek, continued:

We passed several groups of plantation workers, some on their lunch break, but our guide asked us not to take photos of them, not that I would have anyway. Soon after we passed them, we came upon a bunch of porcupine quills strewn along the path. Guess the little dude grew new ones.

(And yes, it was sharp enough to kill.)

Later on in the afternoon it started to pour, and we sheltered on the front porch of a wonderfully friendly family. Candice tried her hand at cat’s cradle with one of the daughters while we waited for the rain to stop.

The day Sophie and Candice left town (sad!) I went on a day tour arranged through the local tourist office. It wasn’t anywhere near as awesome as the plantation trek, although I did enjoy some nice views of Mattupetty Lake and Dam:

I think I’ll blog about Oxford and London before I continue with India…

    Who would have thought porcupine quills where half white?! Did you keep it as a weapon for the future?

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
