Was so nice to get off the ship after 5 days since Singapore. I am not in Cochin, India. I had to spend the day organising a homestay exchange for Japanese participants. I was lucky to also have the chance to stay with a family and they are so wonderful. We went to temples, saw elephants, ate more curry than ever before and just enjoyed southern India. I have learnt so much about this country in one day. Madhu and Sarah are wonderful hosts. I can’t even explain the things I’ve seen today. Walking in some temples with such mysterious music and happenings, walking into strange rooms with katah kali dancing and just feelings completely immersed into another world. I am really feeling the sensation and getting further and further.
