Days 9, 10 & 11 – Periyar, Kerala
February 1, 2010 • Spiritual Adventures
Greetings from India. We’ve been away from our laptop and hence have not posted anything as of late. Here’s a link to photos from days 9, 10 & 11. They include the drive from Madurai to Periyar where we stayed for 2 nights. Highly recommend a visit to this place. Up in the hill stations, its green, lush and quiet. Quite chilly in the morning – a nice break from the Indian sun. In the 2 days in Periyar we enjoyed a boat ride in the National Park, a visit to a spice plantation (including buying heaps of exotic spices), an elephant ride plus scrubbing down the elephant (that was loads of fun), classes on meditation as we delved deeply into how to work with the forces of the mind, more wonderful Indian food and a visit to a tea plantation on the day we left Periyar.
