Our hiking season started after a very wet 'summer'. We have done a few wonderful hikes this season on the same old trails, without my camera.
At the end of July we decided on another long hike and for some reason I brought my camera. I didn't regret; at Henrietta we were able to watch the beginning of 'Aadi Cavadee' - a Tamil Festival.
Musicians heating up their 'ravanne' before playing. An original 'ravanne' is made of goat skin.

Milk is one of the offerings, here poured into a 'kalasha' or 'lota'
We spent a few minutes here to watch the beginning of the aadi cavadee, before we continued to Tamarin reservoir and started the climb up to Mare Longue
