To the south…

Here we sit at the gorgeous Taj Malabar in Kochi (Cohcin) – a welcome change from the urban chaos in the northern cities.  What experiences we have had – we’ve been jostled on buses and trains, visited some of the world’s top heritage sites and spent time with street children who have safety and mentorship amidst a city of 20 million souls.  We stopped to see where Gandhi spent his last 140 days, and also went to Sarnath where Buddha gave his first sermon.   We spent a restful couple of days at Ramanthra Fort where we were treated royally and had the chance to spend a morning in the local village and school.  And then on to Rajasthan – think camels, safaris and jewels!
