A lovely cloudy morning welcomed us again. Drizzling all through the greens of our cottage, we enjoyed those little showers on the “sleep nets” tied across the trees, relaxing lazily. No work, no responsibility, only gazing at the mesmerising nature was the work entrusted to us. We took to an interesting breakfast at the cottage. Yummy aloo parantha’s, hot elaichi tea in the chilly rainy morning. This is what a Continue Reading
