Potter, potter, make me a …pot!

Somewhere in the bowels of Fraser Town is a non-descript place called Pottery Town. It’s not really a town, just a street that houses about 30 potter families. And have been for quite some time now. Apparently, Pottery Town was born when the Government gave 60 potters a designated area on a 30-year lease. Over the years, the potter’s days of glory has declined and many of the new generation don’t want to take it up.

Blog reader and now blogger Divs writes, “Where are more pics, Anita?” So here’s especially for him a travel diary and more pics from my recent trip! And thanks Divs for the pics and your homestay details (check end of post on where to stay). It might be useful for those of you planning trips to Coorg. A journey through scenic Coorg Day 1: Sept 30 On the Road After attempts to start bright and early at 5 am in the morning, we finally left the city around 6 am. Chandra’s Tata Safari was the vehicle for the trip and there were six of us packed in : Chandra, Deepsan, Silvester, Rajiv, Venkatesh and me. After 2 hours on the road, the hunger pangs began to set in and we sighted a likely breakfast place around 8.30 am where we packed in a fulfilling south Indian breakfast of idlis & dosas.
