Ooty, India

Spent the majority of the day on the local bus from Mysore yesterday to get to Ooty, but that said it proved to be the most scenic journey, passing through 2 national parks with monkeys, elephants and other wildlife spotted from the bus.  Even with the bus breaking down twice, we just stopped and got out to look at the tea plants.
Sadly the hill station of Ooty isn't as nice as the surrounding countryside, the town itself abit busy and dirty.  So today i wandered around the botanical gardens with my camera, and watched some of a football tournament at the local stadium.
Going to try to get the bus across tamil nadu tomorrow to get down to kodaikanal, ment to be a nicer quiter place in the hills, and will hopefully be able to go out walking there.

HIya Tom, well I've been speaking to the indian lady again and it looks as if you are already going to the place that she told me about...kodiae canel. She says its lovely where eucalyptus trees grow and also the tea plantation ( which you have already seen) Then she said to go to where the Arabian sea, the Indian ocean and the bay of Bengal meet Its supposed to be spectacular...think its in Kanya Kumari. But not sure if thats the spelling. Well Take care Tom and HAPPY BIRTHDAY xxxxxxxxx
