    Gorgeous photos as always. I love the blue shutters and the photo of you and Ron- looks like a great trip so far!

  2. i’ve beeen toggling between your post and ron’s, but the slow connection has made it hard to view all of the photos.. many came through, though the comment wouldn’t go through on ron’s.. let’s try here!

    thanks for giving us sneak peeks of your trip! z

  3. Great to hear from you. Have a wonderful time and it’s so nice to see a few pictures of your travels.

    Wow! Wonderful! Next stop here, Byron Bay chai, a gorgeous blend from our (Aussie) north coast. You guys have whet my appetite! Oh, it looks so yummy where you are and so much fun! 🙂

  5. Ron & Lynne – looks as though you’re having a fabulous time already! Just to illustrate what a small world it is, I think Shawn and I shared a pot of tea at that very table when we were in Mumbai. Wish you continued safe travels. How I’d love a thali filled with spicy fare right now. 🙂

  6. Superb photos, Lynne. So nice to see the two of you. I love a cup of chai. 🙂

    Your photos tell us you are having a grand time! Look forward to more.
    PS: We lived nearly a decade on those tea plantations in the Nilgiris! My sister lived in Munnar even longer! 🙂

    • I thought the tea plantations created such a lovely landscape. I knew you lived on one but didn’t know for how long. I was glad to see that plastic bags have been banned from the region. Can you imagine the mess those would make? I really enjoyed our short time there. 🙂
