Romancing the Nilgiris

My tourist spirit sank as I saw what was perhaps the first (and hence the oldest!) ATR Turbo Prop of Air Deccan whose age was in complete contrast to the spanking new Hyderabad International Airport from where it was getting ready to take off for Coimbatore.

Airfare for Rs 599 and less!

However, some good photo opportunity from the aircraft and the greenery of Coimbatore city cheered me up as we landed on the surprisingly small and comfortingly cozy Coimbatore airport.
