Day # 2 : 14th Dec 2003

We landed in Cochin (Ernakulam) in the afternoon at 2.40pm. Mr. Mathew was there to receive us. We moved towards our vehicles, our Indica had not arrived so they gave us a Toyota Qualis, which is more comfortable ofcourse. The room was charming one equipped with a sofa, master bed, dressing table and tiny fridge. The surprise was a nice tub in the bathroom.

We had bath and ate the snacks we had brought along. We went out and had tea at a local outlet. It cost us just 7 Rs. for a cup of tea.

We then went for a long walk along the Marine Drive (Yes that is what it is called. I guess, inspired by Bombay) which is bang opposite SEA LORD. We went for the round trip of Kochi harbor in a launch. (Rs. 20/hr per person)

After this and the harbor breeze we were starved so had Super at a self service restaurant. Baba had the Chana Masala and I had the huge Paper Dosa and ended the meal with a pineapple juice. The entire meal cost us 80 Rs.

After the meal we went back for a stroll on the Marine Drive before retiring for the day.

The hotel had central a/c so the night was chilly but I was enjoying my trip to Kerala already.
