  1. Reblogged this on On the Go with Lynne and commented:
    Hello from southern India. Kerala is called God’s Own Country and it is all that. H ave toured Cochin, Munnar , Kottayam, and Mumbai. Here are a few photos from Cochin (Kochi) and Mumbai.

  2. Thank you, Ron, for the splendid postcards.

  3. 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!

  4. Kerala is my family’s state of origin! Hope you enjoy it!

  5. 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. πŸ™‚

  6. Great pics. The train station looks awesome. The net images are gorgeous.

  7. 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.

  8. All wonderful Ron, but that first shot – oh my!!!!! Have a great “rest of” trip!

  9. Fabulous photos, Ron. I especially love the first one. Have a great trip. πŸ™‚
