Coorg_The Scotland Of India

It been a long time,with little time, bogged down with various things, time now to complete the Coorg saga. Coorg or Kodagu, often called the Scotland of India so unique, The people have their own distinct culture, food, the women drape the Saree in their own unique way. Lucky for us to have a cousin hailing from this area. He made sure we could savor all the flavors coorg has to offer.
Spending a night in a home stay, enjoying the dinner the coorgi way is most enchanting. To being with lots of fruit wine (Pineapple, Pomegranate), whisky, Pork, chicken,  Wow! it was wonderful.

Getting up early and taking a walk in the meadows-

 Crossing cool crystal clear streams - most refreshing

Sugar cane from the nearby fields for breakfast

Some flowers along the way

This is something amateur irrespective of the results try

Coorg is our Switzerland. A spledid place. Thanks for the beautiful captures.
Incidently I would suggest you to dispense with the need for Word Verification. It does not serve any purpose rather inhibits people from putting in their comments.
