I am interested for one. All I would ask you to label each snap if possible . Looking at the Ooty Trip Snaps, I am sure these snaps also would be awesome.

@CL,

I have read quite a few travel stories in my life. But this by you have taken away everything ! I can see an emotion that would remain with you for life. These are things which no one can forget. I told you then, I tell you now, you should contemplate writing!

Great Going. Waiting for another one !

Dear CL, I enjoyed reading your travelogue right from the start. I had been to Ooty and Kodaikanal just once, that too, when I was very young and hardly I remember anything. It feels like I made my second trip to these places.

Hi C_L,

Like everyone I have enjoyed your travelogue (and off course, pics too) thoroughly, and can go on and on, appreciating your narration skills. I too am convinced that your travelogues will be right on the top in terms of the way they binds the reader into them!. Your biggest quality that I feel is, your excitement to relive the experience after the journey ends! And believe me (and several others who wrote above), every minute of that precious time that you devote (I remember 5 man hrs daily) in putting up all this for we all, is really too good to be appreciated in words. That's it, friend.

Keep it up.
