After more than 2 years of travel by bus I have yet to ever emerge from a journey as anything other than a hot mess. Somethings I will never adjust to. None the less, we survived the journey from Alleppey to Kochi.
Kochi is one of our last stops in the South. We decided to travel through the south fairly quickly so that we would have plenty of time in the North and some time to chill out in Nepal. Moving so quick has been hard, mostly because I have enjoyed each stop so much that I want to spend more time there.
Kochi is one of those towns that I like, not so much for the sites, but for the overall charm and quaintness.
Our first day there was spent at an internet shop trying to book train and bus tickets and led to a bit of a meltdown since everything was booked and what wasn’t wouldn’t process our cards. We did however manage to watch people play cricket and run into some friends at a restaurant.
The next day was much better. First of all, PZ drank her best cup of coffee yet, which put us all in a good mood. We also spent the entire morning and afternoon exploring the town before catching our train to Goa.
We started our stroll by watching the fishermen bring in their catches.
Then walked through the bazaar street
And the spice streets
And Jew Town, which has a synagogue that was built in 1568, the oldest in the British Commonwealth. Too bad pictures were not allowed.
Plus there were goats. Lots, and lots of cute little goats.
