In the Jungle

While on vacation in Kerala, India, last year, we spent 2 days in Munnar.  We visited a cloud forest (whose name I just can’t recall anymore) with the idea of seeing elephants.  Unfortunately, that never worked out, because a few days earlier, an elephant had killed a man in the area, and the local guides said they would be unpredictable and it was too dangerous.  Instead we did a mini-adventure, with fishing and a bootleg “zipline” – and I got attacked by leeches.

That actually sounds more dramatic than it really was (as I can look back a year later with some perspective) – but I hate leeches.  Thankfully (I guess) these were super tiny ones, not like the ones from Anaconda 2 (ha, that’s my reference point).

Other than leeches, the jungle was absolutely beautiful. It was full of mist and had a mysterious, and slightly creepy, air about it.

Thanks for your comment, Jennifer! I’m glad you liked these. It really was magical! (Except for the leeches. :) )

Mary, I haven’t seen that movie. (I know, I know.) But based on what you say, I think I’ll pass! :) Oh man, I’m obsessed with forests and trees too. Can’t get enough!
