Finally caught up on my backlog of pictures and scanned and uploaded them to my online albums. What a feat! Didn’t realise there was so much to do!
Anyway, here they are. The much delayed pictures from the Kerala trip.
These were taken by Steph and me, with her Sony digital handicam.
The journey: Netravati Express from Mumbai to Alleppey
Alleppey: About 2 hours from Cochin, this is an ideal place to laze around, go for long lake rides and do absolutely nothing.
Thekkady: The famous Periyar Sanctuary is located in Thekkady. A day long trek in the reserve is recommended if you want a real feel of the place. And a binoculars to do some bird watching!
Spice plantation: We got an in-depth lesson about our spices by our informative guide (stuff they never taught us in school!). The plantation had not only spice, but also really pretty flowers. Check out the pics!
Cochin: A nice town by the sea. Fort Kochi is where all the action is! And all those Chinese fishing nets. Besides Willingdon Islands from where you get a nice view of the Cochin harbour.
