Ladies Day Out - 4

Day 4: Munnar

The next day was very unplanned and got troubled when a fight erupted on where to go next. She said East, I said West. We were already in East because of her interest; I insisted to go west! I.e. a wildlife sanctuary. We had to take a bus in the afternoon, so we went for some local shopping that morning. Of course after a typical South Indian breakfast!

I shopped some Munnar tea and coffee that's a specialty of the place. Some hand-made soaps and lots of hand-made assorted chocolates for my friends!

After taking a bus and traveling a painful journey of 6 hours in bus we got a rude shock in the evening! Read after the photos ...

Yum! Masala Dosa and vada
slurpy filter coffee
Common city-scape of Munnar
We shopped from here! The old man gave us good discounts :)
Beautiful weather !

Traveling there, one again goes through these scenic place ...
ahh... I don't know if I'll ever be able to see these views again!
Pretty homes
Sometimes we got bored watching these, after all we were in the bus for 6 hours!
Love !

So here it is; the shocking part -

Because of our mistake... we reached at the wrong place! Instead of 'Thattekkad' which is a bird sanctuary we reached 'Thekkeday' which is a wildlife sanctuary (Periyar Tiger Reserve!)

A mere communication problem in the south and our travel for so long put us into mess. We were in kind of a remote area and we got damn scared! It was almost late evening and we had no other option to go anywhere else. I later convinced her that Kerala is a tourist friendly place and this place too we can stay overnight and go to the wildlife sanctuary in the morning BUT she refused to listen and was furious. Anyways... after a while we both cooled down because people actually were tourist friendly. A guide helped us to get a good night halting place and made a plan for the next day morning! The manager of the hotel was a good man, helped us understand the place and the sanctuary we'll be visiting! Had a bitter night because of my friend.
