The Asia season was finally nearing an end and our first stop in India was Cochin. I have to admit though, these pictures are also unpublished and a year old. I didn’t actually go ashore in Cochin this year. If I had, I probably would have bought a carpet.
We hired one of these things, on recommendation from a friend – who said that this driver was the best. He was! You might notice this one has a Swiss theme – this is because the driver was given this thing as a present from a Swiss guy, to whom the driver is eternally grateful.
We took a little tour of the city
The driver beeped at this little old lady and nearly ran her over!
We passed some sights..
We stopped at the obligatory carpet store, where the Driver gets a prize if he brings you there.
I nearly bought this carpet. As we drover away the shop owner was chasing me, yelling, “ok, ok! $700, we ship!”
|I liked these tables, made from old doors. I wonder if they ship these also?|
We briefly stopped at a Cricket game
A hindu temple
And more street scenes
And a pepper tree!
