Tamil Nadu, Cyclone was about to end and it was winter. Voila, Kodaikanal turned out to be the perfect recipe for my wander-appetite.
Kodaikanal is 250 km away from my place. Started at 6:00 a.m in the foggy morning. As cyclone was about to end, it was drizzling and cloudy the whole way, which adjoined my bike ride lust. The green scenic route with fog surprise me now and then.
Had a couple of stops for tea and frequent stops to enjoy the nature.
I gave enough time for my eyes to make love with mountains that was covered by fog, sometimes I stayed till the fogs made its move.
All the time I have travelled in hills, my first one hour is the more exciting time. Different landscapes now and then amuse me.
I reached the dorm where I was staying? at 1:00 p.m. I took a deep nap for a couple of hours. As the wi-fi was restricted to just the reception, I had to spend most of my evening in that small box? i:e reception, This also gave me an opportunity to gape at the human movements there. And here is where I met Emily, Patricia and Vishal. Emily was from France, Patricia from Spain and Vishal from Pune. Emily and Patricia mistook me for the receptionist and asked for help with wi-fi connection, gradually the conversation extended to exchange of knowledge on each other countries. Vishal arrived in no time. He became my roomie, We couldn’t get to know each other as he was exhausted.
Eventually the climate got worse and time became still. I suggested a game of carrom to Emily & Patricia to drive the needle on clock, ended up inventing a new way to play which was fun.That’s how the day ended.
