April 5th – Ella

We woke late from a beautiful sleep. Picking up lunch from the local shop, we headed out along the railway to Ella rock, the jutting hilltop that looks out beyond the town and over to the plains below- to the east this time, unlike our view yesterday.

We didn’t make it though, having got lost in the maze of paths winding up towards the rock itself. Instead we settled for a dip in a broad, smoothed out waterfall that ducked under the railway line above us and spilled down the hillside, eventually disappearing some way below.
