Tamarra’s Travel Diary

Thursday, 22 Feb 2007

Location: Cochin, India

MapHello All! I haven't been great about blogging lately but here I am!! I have had a wonderful week! Actually I have no idea where or what I blogged about last but I am going to start in the mountains! After a long winding incredibly beautiful bus journey, up, up, up we arrived in Munnar at night in the dark! Finding a place was a struggle but we managed! The next two days were spent hiking through the most amazing tea plantations. The tea bushes fit together like jigsaw puzzle pieces, the surrounding mountains and waterfalls and lakes were sooooo incredilbe. I am always so moved when I am in the mountains. I just can't get enough. I also enjoyed the relief from the hot, stifling, polluted India air! I have been battling a cough and the fresh mountain air definitely helped the mending process. I am now in a city called Cochin. Tomorrow I will explore the old city and its synagogue! Maybe I can score myself a shabbat dinner! Okay short and sweet! Chat soon, Love, T
