I visited the wedding of a close friend in Kerela. I had the most amazing time, and here is a photo documentation of my trip!
At the very onset, I was unduly attracted by the clouds outside my airplane window. Though it is not unusual for me to be besotted by things other people find quite commonplace.
"As I look out of my airplane window, I contemplate climbing these tall, ethreal mountains of the Gods, suspended in mid air; Standing, aloft on their mighty peaks, and feeling oh, so high.
Maybe I will wait until dark and reach up to touch the stars."
Then I looked down and saw mountains covered with coconut trees, and rivers meeting the seas. So I focused my thoughts on the world below. And I was not disappointed!
Green backwaters, mouthwatering local food, greenery everywhere, colourful houses, and a million temples, churches and mosques!
The wedding was a traditional affair, with food served in a banana leaf. I met new friends, witnessed new ceremonies, and braved the sweltering heat in a saree. I spent the next day taking in the sights of Cochin.
Cochin is a wonderful city. Colourful houses, flowers in full bloom and winding streets.The gulmohars here are red, vividly so. The seafront is clean, the the remnant traces of the Dutch colonization is quite delightful.
I have so many ideas lined up for outfit posts, haven't been able to take pictures because of the trip! Hope you've had a wonderful weekend too.
