Yep, more Kerala

It was definitely a nice retreat to stay in Kerala for a few days.  It was extremely cool, quiet, and fresh.  We had great meals everyday, and had a very leisurely time.  We played games, ate food, walked around and basically felt like we were taken care of.  The quietness can be shocking after being in the city for a time.  I was used to the city traffic and constant hum.  However, once you refocus your senses to listen to the natural settings of the babbling brook, the bird calls, the monkey knocking at your door (really, they did), you then begin to feel like yourself again.

This dancer was one of the employees of the hotel.  She performed twice while we were there.  Her expression and movement we amazingly controlled.

South Indian dance tells traditional stories.  All of the performers I saw when I was in India had studied this particular kind of dance as children.

The monkey knocking on the door.  You  MUST lock your door at all times, or they will come in.

We took an evening walk through the old tea farms.  Such a peaceful place and nice vantage points.

Don’t know the name of this game, but we played it.  Made our own rules too.

Daily treats and tea time.  Yum!
