    ... The houses are gorgeous with brightly painted exteriors and right by the water’s edge so people use the water to wash themselves, their clothes and their crockery.

    Arrived back in Fort Kochi around 5pm just in time to grab a drink and watch the sun set by the Chinese fishing nets - definitely worth seeing before leaving.
