Munnar to Kodikulam

It was a beautiful drive to Dewalokam, where we will spend New Year’s Eve on an ancestral farm of the Alilakuzhy family, an ancient Syrian Christian family of Kerala. It is in the spice belt of Kerala, nestled on the banks of the Kannadipuzha River.

Coffee flower.

Dewalokam is an organic farm, producing fish, meat, eggs, milk, fruits and vegetables. We went for walks in the spice & rubber plantations and forest, did yoga (all of us!), walked around the village, visited the local school, learnt about rubber processing, swam in the river, joined cooking demos, and I milked a cow.

Water Buffalo.

That’s all for now!

    I wish I had gone for a walk in the spice plantation and did yoga! Instead I drank far too much and had a very bad headache. Wishing you all a very Happy and Peaceful 2017. X
