Kochi, Kerala: India

This is: Kochi, Kerala

Next stop: Thattekad Bird Sanctuary, Kerala

  • We stayed at SeaHut Homestay from 3rd - 7th February 2018.
  • Kochi is a wonderful sea-side area and Will and I have agreed it's been the perfect place to ease us into the hustle and bustle of Mother India.
  • MUST DOS:
  1. Sri Krishna Cafe 
  2. Walking around Mattancherry and Fort Kochi and soaking in the atmosphere
  3. Looking at the massive trees
  4. Trying Keralan rice
Getting lost on our very first day - in Jew Town, Mattancherry (Yes, that's what it's really called)

Our first cow-on-road sighting! On the first day, I was very upset with cow to cow poo ratio (like 1:500) - more cows please! Sure we will see more as we move north! Fort Kochi.

This Onion Uttapam from Sri Krishna Cafe was the bomb. GF and vegan goodness at its finest, thanks South India! Mattancherry
