Perumal Malai Road
We reached Perumal Malai bus stop at 2.3o PM. Kodaikanal was 14 kms from the stop. We decided to take any bus that comes first, either to Kodaikanal or in the reverse direction. We tried to stop a bus that goes to Kodaikanal, but the driver didn't stop the bus. In the opposite direction came an another bus that go to Batlagundu. We boarded the bus and slept. It was a one and half hour drive.
It's hot out there but ppl there are hard working, they work for cheap, very loud spoken ppl I must say, at first anybody would think of it as rude simply coz of the language barrier, but hey! they mean no harm, they are just loud, a good place to find a lot of things on whole sale rates, fruits, silk, construction materials, gold, silver, steel is best in India and all of our coins are produced by the steel provided from Salem, and those coins are all over india.
Fort Main Road
Found this bakery, called cherry on top, as a person from Bangalore I was a little surprised to see something like this simply coz ppl here in Salem were not so adaptive to change, but never the less ppl are changing, and I can see changes happening as the generation is changing, ppl here are accepting such changes, in environment and ambience, to the kinds of food etc.
