Chittar Ride – I

000b

 

Just a one-day ride. My batch mate Benet from MFA course, told me of this nice little simple joint where, they serve the freshest of Fish, along with the traditional Kerala” Meals” (Rice with vegetables)


001A

On the way we were to meet another batch mate and good friend of ours Biju at Karakonam ,  , we must have rode for about for about 45 mins where we took a break .

003

The slowly light showers started and the clouds changed and we had to wait out the rain ,

002A

It was close to noon when we met up Biju and soon we 3 were on the road again, when the rain poured down we’d stop and wait it out, we had a lot of catching up to do and well you put 3 photography buffs for some time, the conversation revolves around clicking pictures, framing shots and travelling. We didn’t plan to visit the Dam though our next stop was definitely to fill our bellies with some local country cuisine!

On reaching the place we were told that food will be only ready in about an hours’ time. So we went about taking some more shots and just exploring the country side.
