Fort Kochi (+photos)

I spent an extended weekend in Cochin, also called Kochi, originally a Dutch fort in the Indian state of Kerala. As these 20 amazing photos that Terry took share, there are fantastic arts shows to be seen there. We also strolled to Jew Town, and came upon a synagogue that was built in 1563.

Ship discharging near Fort KochiFort Kochi is near Ernakulam, which is distinguished by multiple waterways and a fun ferry system. Not all is upbeat in this water wonderland area, though. In doing some research on water pollution I came across an article about water in Ernakulam. This picture may give clues as to part of the problem... Many thanks to Terry Berger for this photo.
