Kannur : India Untravelled Continued
We are spoilt Delhi people, living in a land locked city. Wynad showed us how green our country is, Kannur showed us how wonderful the beaches are. However, the transfer from Wynad to Kannur was horrible. The resort people in Wynad put us on a local bus, which had no suspension to talk about. So we arrived in Kannur bone weary and tired, to this view
This brought fresh energy into our bodies and smiles to our faces, …. And Kid#2 became a beach boy
Of course my wonderful son wanted to go native and climb coconut trees!
I must tell the India Untravelled people that the stay at Kannur was much better than Wynad, and a lot of my feeling of positivity comes from the absolutely warm hospitality of our wonderful host Indu of Blue Mermaid. The food was excellent, the sight seeing trips were well planned, and Indu .. bless her warm heart, was such a interactive and caring host, and an amazing cook! Loved the stay in Kannur.
We visited a place where handloom was being woven and went crazy buying stuff
Here is a woman weaving a rug
We also went to Saargalaya which is a craft village. It was scenic, a group of red roofed huts around a lake where people were weaving, threading beads, painting with oil paintings. It was lovely

Kannur is a place I will definitely visit again, its beautiful and the food Indu fed us was wonderful
