Magnificent Munnar

We arrived in India a few days ago. I spent the first day with my students learning about the global spice trade with the Synthite organization in Cochin. Then, with our own car and driver, our family headed for the hills and tea plantations in Munnar.

The sunset, as seen from our balcony, was just gorgeous on both evenings we were there.

Gorgeous colour!

Continuing our exploration of the state of Kerala, we have a relaxing few days planned. Today, we rode elephants and toured a medicinal spice garden. But honestly, the tea plantations are so incredibly beautiful they are going to stay in my mind for a long while.
