As many of you know, travelerlynne and I are in India for the next few weeks. This is the first of, hopefully, several “post cards.
The iconic fish nets of Fort Kochi, in Kerala State in southern India along the Arabian Sea. The nets are thought to have been introduced by Chinese explorers when Kubla Kahn was emperor in the late 14th century.
Spices being loaded in Jew Town, Kochi, as a man on his bicycle passes by (below).
Victoria Terminus, a World Heritage Site, is an enormous train station in central Mumbai, where some 3 million people pass through each day.
Mumbai at night.
Time for Marsala Chai at the Taj Hotel, Mumbai.
Next stop, the tea gardens in the Western Ghats.

Fun to see your sights! I think the sepia tone works beautifully with the first image. And last but not least the two of you are looking great!

I love these postcards, Ron. India is such a photogenic place; I can’t wait to see more. Your top three pictures are especially amazing, of the fishing nets, and I love the street shots. And of course, I love the picture of you and Lynne, at the Taj Hotel. 🙂

Great shots, and as always, they make me want to get on the road again. Also, enjoyed seeing the two of you “at tea”. Have a wonderful trip.
