    ... Back on the ship we were grateful to remove our sweat drenched clothes and to shower and change, ready for our Azamazing evening at the Le Meridien hotel where we were greeted by caparisoned elephants, pettily lit trees, drumming and trumpets, decorated arches, fresh coconuts and a coconut milk drink, beer, wine savouries, sweets, toddy and the opportunity for palm reading, henna paintingetc. There was a short dancing performance of different local styles and martial ...

    ... said that India would be an assault on our senses and would challenge us in every way. We pulled into India and I went outside and was hit with the heat. But I wasn't hit with smells. Not even a fishy smell. In Viet Nam and Myanmar, the ports distinctly smelled like fish. Cochin did not smell like fish. The air wasn't fresh either. It was just air. Well, more specifically, very polluted air. Anyway, I was in India even though the port area didn't differ much from previous port ...

    ... of was how much I really needed the toilet. Being back near the beach at Varkala was nice. Western beach resort means decent food, seafood particularly and relaxing. The weather wasn't quite obedient at a humid 32 and the sea breeze was lacking.

So rough in fact that at 6.30pm when the (unconvincing) life guards left the beach everyone ...

    ... a balconied area where women could worship separately according to Orthodox Jewish rites. Now we move on to the Mattencherry Palace, now known as the Dutch Palace. This building was presented to the Raja of Kochi in 1555 by the Portuguese, labelled as a gesture of goodwill (ie a bribe) to secure trading privileges. It was renovated by the Dutch in 1663 hence its alternative name. For an entrance fee of jus Rs5 (5p) each it's a pretty incredible place. Although a museum ...
