Places from memory

  • visiting Ooty, the nearest town
    One weekend a month - we'd get to visit Ooty, the nearest town, on an 'outing'. It was a real treat... Here are some of the places I remember off the top my head. * King Star Bakery * Mohan's Department Store * Higginbotham's * Shinkow's - the Chinese Restaurant * Kurinji's (mmmm....paper dosas...) * Blue Hills Lodge. h/t to Yohaan for the last three. His choices at the BHL: ceylon paratha and chicken curry.

Great to see the pics of Pitchies. Was "Goblin" alive in your time? I think he was a business partner if not the owner of Pitchies in my time, in the 1950's. He sold the most delicious coconut toffee - I can still recall the fantastic taste! We used to try making our own by melting jaggery and coconut in the open in dens below Top Flats... never could match Goblin's delight.

The coconut toffee was called Kammarkat

Kammarkat!! Not sure Goblin was around when we were there, but he sure ran a classic store!

high up in the hills

  • Come spend time with me...
    ...high up in the blue hills of Southern India...and within the open spaces of Lawrence School, Lovedale. This boarding school is over 150 years old; it is where I spent nine years of my life - grades 4-12. Lovedale is an endless fount of stories...and I hope you enjoy reading mine! Names of teachers and students have almost all been changed to protect the privacy of innocents.
