The next day I started earlier since I had a bus to catch in the evening. I contacted the same auto driver and did the bargaining again. :P We covered the Coimbatore direction this time.
Places covered along Coimbatore Direction:
Eravikulam National Park.
Marayoor Sandalwood Forest.
Sugarcane Processing Plant.
Munnar had been great! If the picturesque view Munnar provided made it a pleasant stay, the company of the auto driver made it all the more exciting! I couldn’t stay for more than two days, but trust me! I seriously wanted to stay there; spend a few more days traveling. If I could, I would surely go back to Munnar and relive those days again. Coming back from Munnar was heart breaking for me.
You see, there is this feeling…the kind you get when you are leaving a beautiful place and all you want to is, to stay back a little bit longer. And this time, I had to leave two beautiful things - Munnar’s beauty and the auto driver’s jokes.
