TODAY WAS MOVING DAY HERE IN KODAIKANAL ..

Today the HIGH SEASON rates took effect here in Kodaikanal and my room rate at the Raahat Inn DOUBLED from 800 to 1,600 Rupees per night (from $16 to $32 US Dollars).

I knew this was coming as it was carefully explained to me on March 28th when I checked in.  Last week I scouted-out a new place to stay and today I moved in.

When I go to Ooty later this week or early next week .. I am NOT going to take all the luggage I have here with me to Ooty. I did all-in-my-power to attempt to maintain the lower rate (800 Rs) with the Raahat Inn but to no avail.

With the HIGH season on hand .. rooms may become scarce.  I do NOT want to be in Ooty ‘thinking about’ what I will have to do here in Kodaikanal with respect to finding a room here when I return.  So I will keep my room and use it to ‘store’ the things I leave here.  It is well worth it to me to do this.  I want to be traveling very light on my Ooty exploration.

And I want to be able to return here on-the-drop-of-a-dime .. I just have no idea of what Ooty has in store for me.

So I am now good-to-go to Ooty.  And Conoor?  And Munnar?  Don’t be surprised if I expand this ‘short road trip’.
