It's been an amazing couple of days. Yesterday's 140-kilometer drive from Fort Kochi to our hotel near Munnar took about five hours, not including a stop at a spice outlet that included a "tour" and explanation of various spice-producing trees and plants, followed by a hard sell in the store.
The first item she offered us was a male aphrodisiac. Brian told her that he didn't think his wife would allow him to buy that and drew an uncertain smile.
We bought pepper, nutmeg, turmeric powder, and some chocolate for Biju's children, and made our escape.
