Fishing in Fort Kochi

A travel blog entry by staceyandben on May 04, 2014

As soon as we arrived in Fort Kochi, we narrowly missed a pre-paid taxi scam at the train station. However, we got to our hotel and went on a mission to find some food which was one of the worst meals we have had in India- or maybe we were spoilt in Varkala...
With only 1 day in Fort Kochi, we were up early and ready to explore. We dug out the map and did our own walking tour which included:-

... it was the tastiest tuna, Leela gave us a tuna curry and tandoori tuna. I don't thing we have dined so well in India.

... on how smart I looked! I had already found a willing 'volunteer' to help me as I find it very mentally hard work doing all the paperwork whilst trying mentally to store their names into my head. It seems to me a bit like rubbing your stomach and patting you head - or juggling many bits of paper. I just explained who I was, crossed off their names and wrote out the name badges and informed them of where there bunks were. I ...
