Wow!! India has been amazing – we went to Munnar, which is in the mountains, and it is well known for its tea plantations. The view is very, very pretty!!
Nina and Bella and I had tons of noodles, and rice pancakes! Yum!! I hope we go there again because it is very special.
At the moment we are in Madurai, in a nice hotel. The staff are really kind to us and they always have a smile on their faces. I am enjoying it- even though it has been quite sad at times. We have seen kids begging on the streets and they often say hello, and even though they must be very hungry and hot, they are still happy, and they are still smiling.
Sadly though the streets are very dirty and smell so bad!!! We often have to cover our noses up!! See this cow and dog picking through the rubbish which is everywhere!
Mum and dad have been so patient with us! No wonder they are both lying on the bed, looking EXAUSTED!! Today we took a break from the road trips and we went for a swim. Mum went to the flower market with Tony (our very patient and kind tour guide!!). We have been to so many hotels I lost count! Yesterday, we went to a local Palace, and they were some Indian children on a school trip – and they where crowding around us and wanting pictures!
Then we went to a Hindu Temple, called Sri Meenkashi Temple, where we had to remove our shoes, but then it started pouring with rain, really pouring!! I could see from mums face that she wasn’t enjoying it at all as it is really much too dirty to be barefoot.
We bought a big bottle of dettol after walking barefoot
It’s been very interesting seeing how the life is in India and hope we come again!
