You might ask yourself what I was doing going to such an uninteresting city (from a tourist point of view), and the answer would be that I have friends there. I stayed with them a couple of nights, and then we headed out to Coorg together.We stayed for three nights at a coffee plantation in the mountains, enjoying the sweet and pollution-free mountain air and taking hikes in the forest. I did have one bad day there, when I came down with what can only have been gastroenteritis, but it was over in 12 hours and while I did feel a bit weak for several days afterwards and unable to enjoy spicy foods, that was only to be expected.
