    Alleppey

    March 1, 2015 in India

    Am 28.02. sind Manu und ich von Zürich über Dubai direkt in den Süden Indiens nach Kochi geflogen! Heute morgen gelandet, von unserem indischen Kollegen Cheppy mit dem Auto abgeholt worden und knapp 2 Stunden bis zu seinem Guesthouse durch die indischen Strassen geheizt! Angekommen am Rande der Backwaters wurde uns die Hitze dann richtig bewusst! Mit 94% Luftfeuchtigkeit und ca. 34 Grad am Tag werden wir uns wohl noch etwas eingewöhnen müssen...

    Nachdem wir am Mittag denn etwas Schlaf nachgeholt haben zog es uns noch in die "Stadt", zum ATM, zur Pharmacy für den unbedingt notwendigen Moskitoschutz (ich habe bereits 9 Stiche!) sowie zum Strand! Hier fanden wir ein herziges Restaurant mit Aussicht auf das arabische Meer und genossen unser erstes indisches Essen beim Sonnenuntergang! Der perfekte erste Tag geht zu Ende!

    Back home in uncredible India! Missed and love it...

    בדרך לקוצ'ין

    January 25, 2016 in India

    אחרי שלושה ימים באלפי אני בתחנת הרכבת מחכה לרכבת לקוצ'ין, הפעם במחלקה של העמחה כדי לחוות גם את זה, בקוצ'ין אני אשאר ללילה ומחר נראה מה יהיה.
    ביינתים קצת בורקס ביצה ותפוח אדמה עם צ'אי כדי להתכונן לנסיעה

    Aleppey, houseboat and backwaters

    December 4, 2017 in India

    Well famous Kerala backwaters... The plan is simple, go to the harbour and find the cheapest houseboat with full service for our little party and relax.
    So at first accommodation for night. It's really good to be here out of the season because room for three people is possible to get for 800 when the normal price according to price list is 3000. Directly next to the harbour, perfect location.
    Let's go to the harbour and check the prices! First offers around 10000. Ouch... But when we crossed harbour from the end to end twice we have two offers for 8k, so we're waiting till the morning to check one boat which is not there now.
    Meanwhile the city is... Well there are two canals, they're nice for the first look but for the second one. Thrash everywhere. Nice...
    The city is famous only because of the backwaters so in the centre is...drum roll... nothing. It's not completely true, at least they have couple of good restaurants.
    Next day in the morning is time for our negotiation skills! And the results, 6000 for good houseboat and really nice crew.
    So, let's have a breakfast, pack our things and nothing more just relax... funny thing is that even we're in India is possible to meet friends from IIT. As in our case when we met one guy from campus on our way for a breakfast.
    So we're ready. We have all necessary things as our backpacks, good mood, beers, rum... that's it! Time to go.
    Whole trip was filled with amazing views. Just sitting on the roof and looking around. Exhaustive exchange semester. And after lunch we figured out that we have really good chef with us because the fish and curries were really good!
    The rest of the day we spent with chilling on the mattresses and drinking beers... Well as a proper pirates we switched to rum after dinner. With sunset to look at. Wow...
    Morning was quite weird. We parked no so far from main harbour and from the crew's behaviour was obvious that the end is coming. We didn't stop for a breakfast, we had it during the journey and also there weren't morning tea! The gas tank was empty.
    So quite disappointed but in good mood we left the boat and took a morning tea in tea stall.
    Time to move!
