I boarded the night bus from Bangalore on 24th October and reached Kodai the next morning at around 8AM.. As there are no cabs or autos in Kodai, I had to take taxi from bus stop to zostel. The taxi fares are really high. Even after bargaining, I paid 150 Rs for just 3kms (he was asking for 250 Rs) I reached zostel and was so fascinated looking at the location and ambience. I was allotted a bed in mixed dorm. I got freshened up and came to the common area where I got to meet so many people from different parts of the country. I got along a bunch of most crazy prople and we decided to roam around for the day. We thought of lazing around zostel and found a small tapri where they serve yummiest breakfast(Its a must visit for people who love Idlis, vadas and sambar) After breakfast, we were just chilling around in zostel and by noon we decided to go to explore Kodai. One of the guy had come by car and it was so sweet of him to take 8 people in his Creta(You are awesome dude!) We jumped into the car and headed to Coaker's walk. It's a beautiful walkpath where you get to see the Kodaikanal hills (More like a viewpoint) Then we headed to pine forest where many movies has been shot. It was so engrossing to see tall pine trees spread across a large area. We spent some time there and then headed back to zostel. We had amazing time in the evening chilling with all the fellowmates and met few more people in the evening. We had a campfire setup for us. The chilling weather, the camp fire, the maggi, the dark,the sky with countless stars,the pleasant songs that were played. Cudnt ask for more. At 12, everyone wished me as it was my Birthday and showered me with lots of love. As always Aniket never fails to impress me. He had asked the zostel manager to arrange for my b'day celebration. The manager there had arranged for a cake and decorated the common area and everyone gathered to celebrate my b'day. It literally felt like home away from home. We clicked few pictures, spent some time dancing and went to bed at around 3AM.
