my travel continues..now coorg!

So my tours continue..went to Coorg with some friends and had a great time!
It’s a place full of fresh oxygen in air..hmmm..
The fertility of the land is amazing..stayed in a fantastic guest house in a friend’s estate..(now I can recommend u a great place to stay in Coorg! No marketing this..but really a great place to stay at affordable place and friendly people to pamper u with all comforts!) They were excellent hosts and at times embarrassed us with their hospitality and great people to spend time. They had a grand estate with exotic planatations including coffee, pepper, vanilla, silver oak and what not!! It was fun to move around with them within their estate with lots of narration about each plant and their features including their fantastic ways of irrigation.
Did u ever know that coffee plants bear fruits like berries and that nothing including the seeds have any smell, forget the tantalizing smell of coffee that has u in binds..It seems only after drying and roasting that u get the smell..who ever thought of roasting and filtering and drinking a coffee and ultimately addicting more than half the world..will u fetch that fella n recommend him for the nobels and oscars please???
No..am not yet finished..the crime rates are so low in coorg..as an old man (ofcourse a coorgite) was telling me, any offender will be shot at or whacked to sh#t with feets of committing any offence that none wud dare to in future..This old man was flowing with pride when he said most houses there have a weapon or two and active users..(infact u hear a gun shot or two once a while that conveys a birth or death in the neighborhood!)
Due to the pure atmosphere and their happy n fun life style, the average age of coorgites is an astonishing 80+..that says it all rit? and around 33% are in defence services!
So much for Coorg now..am back in Blore now breathing sulphides and mono-oxides..

PS: BTW an earlier post wishing u a very happy n prosperous new year went for a toss..ok so there goes my wishes to u all again! (though my view that celeberating a 2000 “old” new year as a new one and to come from people like us who have an even older history of 5000 years+ in our kitty..hmm..that’s a heavy one for another time,eh?)
