We managed to find a bar and relaxed playing a card game called Fluxx last night after eating dinner at the Mangotree Restaurant. The portion sizes are way too big for my appetite but my other half does ok.
Before coming to India I made a travel journal from Stampin' Up's new large Kraft notebook. It's decorated using the retired traveller stamp set, a tag from my stash and current patterned paper. My aim is to try and keep notes along the way. Probably just bullet points and I'm going to stick in business cards, receipts etc... to create a unique but interesting journal.
After our group orientation we went for a walk along Fort Cochin's front to see the Chinese Fishing nets as the sun started to set. It was great to see all the locals buying and selling fish. We then enjoyed our first group meal together.
We have just come back from a fantastic cookery class. We saw it signposted and then checked it out on Trip Advisor. Maria's Cookery Classes get a great write up, if you are coming to Cochin I highly recommend them. Here is her dining room table covered in most of the ingredients we need to make 4 vegetarian dishes.
