Flag of India  , Kerala,
Thursday, January 18, 2007

We've moved on to the state of Kerala. South western tip of the country. Very Balmy. We're staying inside a fort again, we like that. A major flood in AD 1341 created one of the finest natural harbors in the world. Kochi thus became a haven for seafaring visitors from all over the world and became the first European township in India passed from the Portuguese to the Dutch to the British.
Its a dream here compared to some of the other places we have been. Small and quaint, but still fun. Mostly Portuguese architecture in an what feels like an old fishing port.
We spent some more coin here for a nice room. A cool old house with a/c and a spa even. See Geoff - B Can splurge on me now and again. All for the bargain price of $28 a night. We spent last night down by the water and the fishing nets. There you can buy fresh seafood and the "fish mongers" will cook it for you. Yum. After a few of our favorite Beers, we befriended the owner and his buddies and ended up playing cards with them all night and closing down the place. Even had one of them greeting the Ladies with, "How you Doin'?" Joey Style.
Funniest thing ever! We were nabbed by a film crew for an Indian TV show on Night life. It was Hilarious. In the interview they asked "if we were LOVERS" and asked us to kiss on camera. Brian's comment was, "Yes, we ARE lovers and we make love often!" They asked us "if we liked Discos" and "how many bottles of beer it takes us to get drunk". The Last question, "where did you learn to be so trendy"?. hahahahaha Laughed hard because as you can tell from our pics, we look like hell when we travel. Not much effort there.
Its funny here. The TV is so cheezy. Its like watching real life Saturday Night Live skits. We saw one commercial for "Light and Handsome". A product that is suppose to make men's skin lighter. No kidding.
