A Break from Woodcrawling

I'm a Woodcrawler. Period.

Nothing will make me consider crawling the footpaths of a concrete jungle but sometimes professional compulsions can make me change my mind.

(Thekkady will be back here shortly but I have to take a little break here and go to Mango Musings briefly.)

You see, in my circles I'm considered a reasonably decent speaker and if the subject is on my specialty, Glaucoma, I'm occasionaly invited to enlighten an already enlightened audience! I had therefore dragged myself to Ernakulam (Cochin) for the weekend and since I hate driving out early in the morning on the nightmare called NH 47, I left on Saturday afternoon with my son.

At the end of 24 hours I had to admit that if I discounted the NH 47 experience on my way towards my destination it was really a Grand Experience.
(You can click the link to go back in time and enjoy the old world ambience of the Grand Hotel, Ernakulam as soon as I finish that post, which will be very shortly. Meanwhile enjoy the crisp papadums for starters!)

They are not 'appalams' but 'papadums'. The ones you get in Kerala are thinner and puff up on frying but 'appalams' don't really form 'bubbles'. I prefer the 'appalams' though. :)
