In Goa I met my father.
For the rest of my trip we stayed together almost all the time, which I enjoyed very much.

Dudsaghar Waterfalls

We started our trip to the dudsaghar waterfalls with train ...
.. going ahead by Jeep, wich was really very 'jumpy' ...
... then following a nice little hike ...
... and in the end we succeeded ...

Other pictures of Goa

... all pictures of Gokarn were on the spoiled chip ...

Jogh Falls

... all pictures of the Jogh Falls and the nice friends I met there, were also on the spoiled chip ...
This was the day of the tsunami!
I took the night bus from the Jogh Falls to Mangalore. Here a passenger recommended me to take care and watch the news, before settling my plans of going further to the south, as there was an earthquake somewhere ...


... all pictures of Cochin were also on the spoiled chip ...
Ramesh and me met in Mangalore, at the 4.15h am train to Cochin. (My bus, by the way, reached Mangalore at 4.05h am.) In Cochin for the first time we had the oppourtunity to see the news and get informed about the tsunami. Still, at that time the devasting effect wasn't known yet.


... all pictures of Kovallam were on the spoiled chip to ...


Climbing the Nilgiri Mountains

We started from Trivandrum by train. Via Coimbatore we reached Mettupalayam.

Mettupalayam was the starting point of the Nilgiri Blue Mountain Railway .
It took about 5 hours for a distance of 55 km in an old charming steam train.
