I've found a little bit of paradise in Kumily. This is the gateway to Periyar National Park where apparently wild Tigers still roam free. If I'm lucky I'll see them tomorrow on a jungle safari! I'm staying at Mickey's Hostel and have the best room ever! I have my own little balcony with a lush hanging wicker chair where I can sit and continue to write up my travel ramblings! If I had more time I would definitely stay here for weeks not days. I've made friends with Bobby, the guy who runs the hostel next door and we went out elephant riding and climbed up the mountain to watch sunset which was amazing.
