Bends and Slopes

 

Roads in Coonnoor and Ooty

Bends like a hairpin,

Slopes like a rollercoaster,

Sways us to the sides,

Plays us on the rides,

Was it a hill station or an amusement park?

Descending

 

Descend!
Sun descends to again rise,
Water falls to stop the dries,

My Travel – 1

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Travel

It would have been better if we’d taken the popular train from Mettupalayam to Ooty, up the great mountains of Nilgiris, for it would have been a more relishing journey than by car. However, booking tickets was a hectic task as there was a great demand for them.

The pictures below are in a chronological order of our tour of Ootacamund (aka Ooty), the Beauty Queen Town of the Great Blue mountains of Nilgiris (‘Nila’ means Blue and ‘giri’ means mountain), Tamil Nadu, India.

A Lake in the Central part of the Town

After the pleasant trip, left our hearts in so many places in Ooty and thereabouts and returned home with sweet memories.
