The news in the paper is all about the damage the monsoon
rains from earlier in the week have been causing. We second guess
our choice to travel inland, but settle on continuing until we’re
told to turn back.
Make full use of the late check out and hot showers, lunch at the hotel and taxi to Ernakulam.
Got to visit more local shops in Ernakulam, not at all the ‘gap yr’ look at Cochin which is a welcome relief.
As always the endless quest for beer continued. Beer is just not served with food, instead I keep finding myself in seedy looking bars with no windows, full of men and questionable looking decor.
