When I left Kerala in 2006 I didn’t think I would ever come back. Wasn’t even sure I would be able to travel again. And then, after 14 years and endless travels I returned. Had the best time, even though I got an nasty eye infection. Met so nice new people, and old people who remembered me, and saw the beauty of Kovalam Beach which had passed me by when I spent so much time there every winter. Did even visit the lighthouse which I’ve spent a lot of time looking at but never been up in, and didn’t have to climb up to the top because now there are stairs. So, yes Kerala. I hope you’re well and that I get to see you again.
And I have the greatest respect for people who are able to put food on the table like these fishermen.
