A ride through Kerala from Trivandrum to Calicut via Nalambur.

Trivandrum flower market.

Pulling in the fish net.

There were hundreds of kilos of fish in this one net.

We are in the monsoon season. Not smart. Not again. Nov-March is best.

Vikki about to enjoy a classic and delicious Keralan breakfast. They use a lot of coconut, spices, and unlike most of India, have plentiful avocados.

Cochin fish nets.

We are sharing the road.

Nutmeg. The nut is inside the bright crimson soft tissue which is inside a husk.

Leaving Nilambur. Danny and I stayed with this family in 1978.

Menu. It’s interesting to have records like this. Later you can look back.

Proud and fit. Rickshaw rider standing by ready.
