A quick vacation


We made a quick trip to Munnar and Aleppey, a much needed break for all of us. Pattu’s first:

– Ride on an Elephant – she was so excited and not at all scared. We fed the Elephants some pineapples and corn.

– live show of Thiruvadira Kali, Oottam thullal and Theeyattu – really up close. I was worried about Theeyattu, but she was as cool as a cucumber…not at all scared.

She is able to understand Malayalam and am so happy that she is making an attempt to talk as well.

Mum’s house in Kerala is getting ready in Jan – looking forward to the lovely vacations there. Feeling very nostalgic remembering all those carefree days we spent there as kids, climbing trees, splashing about in the pond…

And people – check out this contest at Blogger Kootam. Spread the word. Participate.
