From Bangalore we went on to Kochi.
We met up with my uncle and aunt, who had traveled there from Calcutta.
In Kochi we stayed in a lovely homestay run by Basil and Annie Mylanthra. They were so hospitable it was like staying with family!
After a day or so in Kochi, gatecrashing funerals and school band practices, we went on to Silent Valley.
Despite my grumbles, it was rather exciting. Here’s the stream at the foot of the forest inspection bungalow.
So you can see, we were surrounded by a lot of atmosphere.
Part 3 coming next.
