Holding The Fort (Cochin)

In Kerala, a prosperous state in Southwest India, there's an old part of the city of Kochi, known as Fort Cochin. There's a lazy, laid back feel to the place and a relaxed vibe, enhanced by the historical, colonial architecture and the still active fishing scene. We'll take a closer look at fishing in another post. For now, let's poke around the town.

A small ferry, still busy. An old church sits in the center of town, right next to the traditional parade ground.

A laid back town deserves a laid back way of getting around. Or simply a radical place to hang out.

With the sun beating down, squint and Miami or Key West might appear.

Two main attractions of the area, featured on a sign: traditional dance and a massage. A pachyderm piper.
