We have had two nights in Munnar, up in the mountains of Kerala, where it was cool, and misty in the mornings and evenings. We loved it up there and would like to return some day.
The slopes were covered in tea plantations, which were so even after being picked that they looked like moss. We watched a traditional dance drama programme of Kathakali one night which was very amusing.
The township of Munnar, built on the hillsides, was a hive of activity with people from nearby Tamil Nadu coming to the town for work and trade. We discovered a fantastic food market which reminded us of Adelaide Central Market. The food was so fresh and there was plenty of it.
Being a mostly Christian state we discovered many shops selling Christmas decorations and so stocked up on some for Christmas Day.
People are also very friendly here and have a good sense of humour.
