Escaping The City

For a recent long weekend, we decided to get out of Chennai and see a little of the countryside. Sure India has 1.3 billion people, but there must be some empty space somewhere, right?

About 3.5 hours outside of Madurai, we found a rural oasis. Greenery! Nature! Our own cabin!

The place had an almost camp-like, communal feel to it, complete with activity/menu chalk board. No, it's not a classic southern alcohol still, it's used for heating water.

Coffee being grown on the property, as in shade grown. Women sorting coffee, literally the fruits of their labor.

It was a regular barnyard with horses (getting a bath) and little chicks running around.
