Fort Kochi, Kerala, India

I got up early and spent the morning exploring Fort Kochi as the sun slowly rose above the low rise buildings. Kids playing cricket while the temperatures were low, fresh fish on sale at the market, fishermen working the distinctive ‘Chinese nets’, richshaws spluttering around the tranquil streets.
