Here we are again. Today we have spent the day looking at beautiful temples and travelling on the excellent buses here. In between which we have been drinking lots of water and soft drinks as it is so hot and we sweat so much we have to make sure we don't get dehydrated.
We saw an elephant at one of the temples today and got blessed by it (after a donation of course). Apart from that we have seen the following:
man with an amputated leg
Lady with elephantitis
Lady with no fingers
Several small beggar children (some with smaller children some with mothers)
After we dodged all of them we were ok, but its very hard as there just isn't enough money in the world to give to all of them. Unfortunately we are becoming very hard to it and tend to ignore them, which is sad in a way.
This is a pretty boring blog as we only updated it yesterday but tomorrow we are off to Coimbatore on the bus (7 hours) wish us luck. We will be staying there overnight and then on to Ooty the next day which will be significantly cooler (and also has a toy steam train like Darjeeling). We will be there for a couple of nights and then onto a Jungle Retreat with an outdoor swimming pool (hurrah!!!!!) which is inside Madumalai national park, so maybe this time we will get to see a tiger (fingers crossed).
Anyway thats all for today, catch up again in a couple of days from cool Ooty.
