Spent a day in Ooty. 27th was our 5th wedding anniversary, and we wanted to be by ourselves. So we had decided to take off to Ooty from Coimbatore. We set out in the morning by a taxi from Coimbatore and reached Ooty for lunch. On the way, we saw a bison grazing by the roadside – quite unusual.

We stayed in the Monarch hotel, owned by former Bollywood star Mithun Chakraborty. The hotel had seen better days, and was a bit musty. But it was comfortable, and the food was quite decent.

The weather was very nice – it was raining as we entered Ooty, and the cold was pleasant, not biting. We lazed the entire day away indoors, and went out only in the morning. After checking out a couple of tourist spots, we headed back to Coimbatore. read more
