My day began on the attractive Periyar Tiger Reserve, one of the best place in Kerala to see tigers! I boarded the bus that may take us there. It prices 500 rupees/$6.68 USD for foreigners to enter the reserve, plus one other 20 rupees/$0.27 USD for the bus journey.

For those who go there to see tigers, I recommend going to the park on a number of days to extend your possibilities, as they’re very elusive.

We arrived at Thekkady Lake. The lake was stunning. There was a mist that hung over the water and between the bushes, giving the who space a mysterious ambiance. Then, we headed again to the Woodnote Resort to get some breakfast. We’d be having string hoppers!

We entered the kitchen on the resort’s Drizzle Restaurant and placed on our hairnets. We noticed a puri-like flatbread, dosas, spices, and a few yummy-looking hen curry. I made some dosas and couldn’t assist however strive one. It was wonderful with the candy, chunky, and contemporary coconut chutney and light-weight sambar. The chili within the chutney added a pleasant bit of warmth!

Then, we watched the chef make string hoppers, or idiyappam. I watched him do it as a result of it was my flip subsequent! After making them, it was time to eat!

My string hoppers arrived at my desk with coconut milk and hen stew. It regarded so buttery and had large chunks of hen in it. Ebbin added a variety of sugar to mine! It was so candy and the coconut milk certain all of it collectively.

Then, I bought some contemporary string hoppers and added some hen and a few of its creamy coconut stew on prime. It was candy and savory, with cinnamon and cardamom flavors bursting out, together with curry leaves and hen. The coconut milk made it extraordinarily creamy! I’d had string hoppers earlier than in Sri Lanka, however this was unreal. It was like a candy coconut pasta!

This was now my favourite factor to have for breakfast. It even surpasses dosas for me now! I couldn’t get sufficient of it. It was so good, I didn’t even want the hen with it.

After breakfast, Ebbin and I linked again up with Dennis from the Woodnote Resort. We headed off to do one thing actually particular. I used to be going to get the chance to wash with an elephant! I used to be so excited!

We arrived at Tusker Path, the place you possibly can to a number of completely different actions. After seeing some espresso beans, cardamom vegetation, and a few powerfully spicy pepper vegetation rising on the property, it was my flip to wash the elephant!

I adopted the man’s directions and brushed the elephant’s trunk. It takes a very long time to clean them I might really feel the air popping out of her trunk. She was so stunning. Then, I washed her tail, which was tremendous tough and felt like large whiskers. I stayed round her again as a result of doing her stomach can startle her and also you don’t need her to by chance harm you.

As I washed her, I might see bits of filth and small bugs like ticks on her pores and skin. I brushed them off. She stood up so I might clear her face and trunk. It was so large! What a lovely and distinctive expertise!
