We stayed herein February 2012 and wanted to write the reiew earlier but have been travelling since. This was a nice clean place with all necessary comforts (mosquito net etc) in a good location in Kochi. We enjoyed our stay here and Firoz was very informative and helpful, he arranged further stays in Munnar for us at a lovely homestay and backwater boat ride in Alleppey.

It was very colourful and an Indian film crew were filming ...
... round trip for less than $0.35 USD total. We spent the day walking the city to find 7 of the 8 highlights listed by AIDA - Chinese fishing nets, market/beach walk area, St. Francis Church, Basilica Santa Cruz, Jew Town and the Synagogue, and Mattanchery Palace. It was interesting to see the Dutch, Portugese and UK influence on the history of this village. Local people were happy and out spending their Sunday by the beach. The streets and drainage system where pretty dirty on ...
... temple ceiling with 333 wooden sculptures together with 253 mural paintings. A passage through different historical eras and mithological passages of India. Highly recommended and a great start of the day. The next stop, a scheduled one, was at the St Francis Church where we were greeted by our guide for the day. This is the first European Church erected by Europeans in India in the early 1,500's. History says that the great Portuguese explorer, Vasco de Gama, was buried here ...
So after a restful nights sleep and a tasty breakfast we set off to explore some of Cochin. It turns out most of Cochin could be explored within a half hour walk radius of our hotel and although it was lovely to wander round, with some beautiful churches and the interesting Chinese fishing nets, we once again found ourselves basing our day around mealtimes.
We had a lovely post ...
... safely and without further incident. Do not know what will happen to the fishermen, but hope they get their new net.
Tonight we dined in Compass Rose and enjoyed our last meal there until Wednesday evening. We leave tomorrow at 4:45a for the Taj. It will be a 3 hour plane ride to New Delhi, India where we will spend the night, and on Monday we will see the famous Taj.
I will not be blogging until we return on Wednesday.
Until next ...
