Driving Down the Mountains from Munnar

10.7 mountain with red flowers - Copy
Sadly we left the Aranya Naturals workshop in the morning and drove 5 hours down steep, rugged mountains toward Madurai. Our drivers took a hair raising one-lane short cut for much of the way. I have learned not to sit in the front seat because watching on-coming traffic is very scary.
10.3 women picking tea - Copy
The mountains were covered with tea plantations and we happened along some tea puckers. The chop-chop-chopping of the clippers was interesting to hear in the quiet country side. Attached to the clippers is a box that catches the tiny tips of the plants. Then the box is dumped into the big sack on the back. We saw only one man-this is mainly women’s work. The road was full of serious switchbacks as we came down. No knitting was done on that ride!  [click first photo]
