      Situated on a hill on the outskirts of the city, we were pleased to have the quiet and the breeze that this afforded. We had the large double and it was spacious and airy with a lovely verandah to sit in. We found a local restaurants within walking distance for lunch and went into the city for dinner on the first evening and had a meal in the homestay the other, before our early start in the morning back home. All the food at Graceful was good and tasty, and Giles, Sylvia and Elsie thoughtful and helpful hosts.

      ... public bus to Kochi. Kochi is the second of our three coastal cities on this tour, however, here the coast is too rough to swim. It is a major harbour for import and export, but even more impressive are the Chinese fishing nets that line the shores. After enjoying a lovely lunch and delicious slice of chocolate cake in an art gallery cafe I strolled the streets and wandered to the beach to watch the sun set. If it wasn't for the stench of warm fish and seafood being ...

We saw at least 4 tigers so not entirely sure which one was the original Richard Parker so we said hello to all of them just to be sure. We also saw lions, leopards, jaguar, elephants, hippo's, zebra's, monkeys, king cobras, vultures, and Pelicans among others, although no Orangutans . There were also sloth bears and brown bears but they appeared to be doing what bears do best, sleeping, so we didn't see them. Most of ...
