The day after the solar eclipse we went on a weekend trip to Kodaikanal. Kodai is another hill station about 8 hours away from Ooty. Some friends of ours, Barb and Torulf Holmberg, from here at Hebron lived and worked at the American school there when their kids were young like ours (actually, Torulf attended the school when he was a small boy). They were very generous to meet us in Kodai and show us around. We had such a great time - that is, after we got up the hairpin bends. The views were breathtaking, but so was the fact that we almost were run off the mountain by another bus.
