Getting hot now so time to stop for lunch at this place called Bay Watch.
Before lunch a swim to cool off - either in the pool overlooking the lake or the Indian Ocean. We chose the sea - it was lovely, like a warm bath, but very few people were swimming, most were just walking along the sand.
After another twenty kilometres in the heat another ferry to Fort Cochin, completely crowded with people returning from work -standing room only.
Staying at a homestay (below) for the next two nights - a bit like a large B&B, but we have the day off tomorrow to explore Fort Cochin.
the old town (Fort Cochin and Mattancherry) as it was their home town.
Wonderful local fish for dinner - choose your fish and they'll cook it for you.
