last stop: at home in fort cochin

August 5, 2013

Found a home with Siyad in Fort Cochin, a small, colorful port town with Portuguese and Dutch influence spread throughout diverse neighborhoods of beautiful, laid back people. I had the fortune of hanging out with some of the kindest, most generous people in India who showed me how to cook, shop for and eat South Indian food. We also practiced daily chai drinking, neighborhood walking and porch sitting. I spent over two weeks in this lifestyle and could have easily stayed for much longer…

more from Fort Cochin to come…

    So glad that you have had this wonderful opportunity to do the fabulous traveling that you have. You are a very lucky young woman – many young people don’t have that opportunity these days. Keep in touch & would love to see you sometime when you are back on US soil!
