Morning street side Chai before breakfast

Day 2 Kochi

Out for an hour's walk before the 8am / 08:00 breakfast. The street side mural was being painted by different people with a crowd watching on. Each time I passed it another section had been completed.

The waterfront was alive with activities. Locals having a street side breakfast or a cup of hot tea, walkers and runners pounding the shoreline footpath, fishermen hauling in their catch plus the fish auction in operation made this part of town busy.

Spoke with a retired local who offered me a cup of tea. His daughter lives in Wellington. The way the vendor poured his tea out reminded me of the lady doing the same on the train in China but with hot water and the train was moving. Love the way the milk was being delivered ... by scooter. Sorry that the 2 videos are oriented incorrectly.

Then along at the breakwater while watching the fishermen again casting their nets spoke with 2 students. One undertaking Islamic religious studies and the other one was completing a B Com.

Breakfast eventually at Oissa with Eddie. We both chose a masala omelette 170 rupees / NZ$3.60 / US$2.60 that came with garlic bread, but it didn't taste that spicy or garlic at all. That with the press coffee came to 232 rupees / NZ$4.90 / US$3.60.
