Mike chatting to Majeed a friend we had had discussions about the future of Kerala
Renting a bike in Fort Kochi is a very relaxed and inexpensive affair! We picked up these authentic Indian bikes the previous evening for 24 hrs, no ID required, no deposit, they didnt even ask where we were staying! Just bring them back when you are finished with them! How cool is that 🙂 When we took them back he asked when we had picked them up! The price? 300 rupees in total, around 3 quid.
We spent the day touring around the canal waterways of Kochi and taking in Mantacherry and Jew Town, stopping by the famous Spice Town where they are traded in vast quantities especially ginger and pepper.
