Kerala

Lady at work in tea plantation - Kumily

Land of spices, tea plantations, backwaters, houseboats and beaches.

We spent 9 days in Kerala and as a starting point we visited fort Kochi where we witnessed for the first time a real spice trading market. Fort Kochi has several other influences; some of them are visible through the Chinese nets, the living Jewish quarter, several Hindi temples, Christian churches and Muslim mosques. All these religions practicing one next to the other in total peace, a great example!

Destiny made it so that Melanie met her mother, aunt and grandmother in Fort Kochi! Only for two hours… L

Two days later we took a 5 hours bus to Munnar (suffering for our life…crazy drivers!). And we went inland through beautiful forest and jungle sceneries until we arrived to the tea hills. Two days later we went down to Periyar, a huge wildlife sanctuary.  On the balcony of our homestay we had at least five monkeys chasing the shadows or the way to come steal our stuff in the room…

We finalized our trip in the backwaters, it’s like Venice a multitude of small towns connected by water canals.

We totally loved South India (Kerala)! People are so nice and relaxed, food is delicious and the weather was really nice.

An accelerated rhythm, an effervescent city!In our two days stay in Mumbai, we visited ... Continue reading
