Kochi is a colonial city in the coast of Kerala. It is a well known city but the best of my stay was not the city itself: it was meeting friends, finding by coincidence an Indian christian wedding and attending a Hindu ceremony for the god Vishnu (with elephants!).
In Munnar I felt alone for the first time in India. It was cold. It was misty. It was solitary. During those two days, I thought about my first week of solo travel and how I was feeling about it.
I knew Allepey is a touristic place, one of the main gateways to the backwaters. But I went there for a reason: I had explored the backwaters in Poovar by motor boat and in Munroe island by canoe, and I wanted to try a different way. And I could do it there.
Munroe Island is a hidden pearl in the backwaters. Not only it is a beautiful, calm place, the people I met there are wonderful. So far, one of the most beautiful places I have seen and one of my best experiences.
I went to Kanyakumari to see the sunset and the sunrise over the sea, and I found something else: a town full of Indian tourists but no foreigners, lot of sun, people who wanted to take pictures with me and much more…
