“Then at a certain elevation the landscape changed again—this time to a carpet of even green shrubs that composed a perfectly-manicured patchwork quilt across the rolling hills—it was tea! Colorfully dressed tea pickers hovered between the clumps of green in a few places, the green expanse dissolving into the mist behind them. We transferred into open-sided jeeps to reach our hotel near Munnar, nestled deep in the tea and spice covered hills. As we unpacked, it dawned on me—it was quiet—a very rare commodity in India.” – Jennifer L. Raines
