We set off for Munnar by taxi this morning. we were advised 7-8 hours of up and down mountains. We immediately started plying the boys with boys with travel sickness pills in preparation for the journey. Normally this journey can be completed in a few hours. However, due to the floods back in July/Aug large sections of road had collapsed and detours needed to be taken.
Sicky mc Sick face
It wasn’t long before the first sick bag was quickly placed over the mouth of our Kit boy, he gets the travel trouble quite badly, poor little fella. By the time we arrived, Poor little Kit was a pail costume of a boy. We had gone through 2 sick bags and 2 plastic bags, wasn’t finished there. Quick retch on getting out of the car, just to make sure. I do feel for him, not nice.
As we moved into the tea plantations, it was easy to see the damage that the floods had caused to the roads and plantations. There was a large scale road construction underway, clearing out debris and reinforcing the roads. This led to quite a treacherous ride in parts. Lots of trucks, muddy roads, large cliff drops. The scenery was some of the most unrivaled beauty we have seen. I tried to capture some of it but weather was not great.
