Fort Kochi, Kerala, India

Left Goa and got the train down overnight to the southern state of Kerala, I have to say I'm struggling abit as this month and April are the hottest months before the rainy season down here.
First stop in Kerala has been Fort Kochi (or Fort Cochin), an old port town first ran by the Portuguese, then Dutch then later British, so quite a rich history for the little town, which churches and various buildinga dating back to the 1500s.  Pleasant wandering around here and the nearby Mattancherry area where I visited the palace which is now a museum.
Photos are of traditional chinese style fishing nets, that counter leaver down into the sea and back, I have to say it didn't look like they were catching too much yesterday, then the Santa Cruz Basilica.
