We were all flagged off from Kochi by Ruairidh, although one car was still awaiting
customs clearance, so will join later.
The first day’s drive took us to Thekkedi.
Day two should have seen us 250 km north in a camp at Palani Hills, but after various
delays we headed back to Thekkedi for another night and went on to the camp site
on the third day. What a shame to miss one of the camping days - we do so love camping.
Today Tuesday 10th we have driven to Ooty, the town in which Morna went to boarding
school. The 30km climb took us up to 2600m and was hard on the car, not helped by
buses and trucks careering round corners on the wrong side of the road.
