IN MY POST HERE ON DOT NET YESTERDAY I talked a lot about all the things that ..

YOU NEVER DO while on a Tourist Tour with a crowd of other people.

Do you .. as a ‘for-instance’ .. stop and LOOK AT the below idlyic stream?

Do you relax .. standing there ..

WHAT DO I SEE DOWN THERE ?

WASHING 001

Look very VERY closely at the above photo.  IF YOU DON’T .. you will miss something special!  I think that ‘the sheet’ below gave him away!

WASHING 002

Well let’s you and I ‘just-telephoto-on-down’ and get a closer look-see!

LET ME .. ALLOW ME .. TO GUARANTEE YOU THIS !

There was NOT one-single-tourist-bus parked alongside of me as I just walked down the road .. INHALING THE BEAUTY that surrounded me!

There was not-one-single-tour-company that ‘featured’ on their itinerary .. STOP AND SEE THE BEAUTY OF THE TINY AND OF THE ‘UNSEEN’ BEAUTIFUL THINGS!

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

NOR ! .. were ‘visiting wood piles’ on any tour itineraries!

Up in Alaska .. wood and wood piles .. are a big thing!  So I went exploring.

The Tea Processing Plant that you see in the below two photos needs wood for its processing of the tea leaves.

WOOD 005In the foreground of the above photo are two of several ‘wood sheds’ .. several of which you see below.

WOOD 003DID I SAY WOOD ?

WOOD 001

WOOD 002

AND SOMEONE MUST .. organize and stack this wood!

WOOD 004

I AM SORRY TO SAY that .. because I did NOT go into the tea museum I do NOT know exactly what part the wood plays in the ‘tea processing’.  I don’t know if it is simply fire wood or some sort of ‘aging the tea’ wood.

Here in India .. for that matter .. any place that is strange-and-new-to-me .. I MUST ESTABLISH MY ‘LANDMARKS’.

For me .. in Munnar .. MY PRIMARY LANDMARK IS .. the below CHURCHILL FOOT BRIDGE!  From THE CHURCHILL FOOT BRIDGE .. all-of-Munnar unfolds for me.

MUNNAR 013I ‘discovered’ my Internet Cafe walking across the Churchill Foot Bridge!  Do you see it down there in the below photo taken from the bridge? Look for the closed red-metal-shuttered door under the yellow sign.

MUNNAR 015As I ‘come-down-the-hill’ from my hotel .. there is MY BRIDGE in the distance.

MUNNAR 003Up a bit closer ..

MUNNAR 004Visible off to the left as viewed from my CHURCHILL FOOT BRIDGE is another landmark for all of downtown Munnar. The greenish colored building with the blue roof.

MUNNAR 014The below photo of this landmark was taken from the hill overlooking downtown Munnar.

BUILDINGWell .. I think that I will have to close this post and get going on getting ready to leave Munnar.  Also I want to put up a post on Blogspot IF I can do so.

Much Joy .. Cap in Munnar in Kerala in India..

Munnar   IS COLORFUL !
