    Dear Liz

    The 12 things here is like a 2 hour rich visual documentary for me as I read it before and after my visit to this beautiful place & sort of went through the same places ..was in Kochi for 3 weeks, stayed at Old Harbour hotel. Awesome place terrific service, lovely rooms, great garden restaurant, I wish I could extend my stay. You were spot on with the details and accuracy…saravana bhavan for veggies provides authentic south indian cuisines lunch and breakfast were delicious.
    I discovered a shop on the way to airport for good quality spices & Indian Tea at very reasonable price ..half the cost of what I got from Fort Kochi where to some extend they tout tourists..shop is Pepprmon..location can be googled.
    One thing i missed is a train journey to tissur, nevertheless I kept some places in my bucket list to visit next time..2020..south india and tajmahal..

    Hello Liz, I read that you lived in Kochi for three years, I will be going there soon and would love to visit some of the places you mentioned.
    Im wondering if in your time there you came across places that sell sandalwood powder or other types of aromatic resins.

    Your info. about Saravana Bhavan is point blank. I have tried out many restaurants – Veg and Non-Veg, but Saravan Bhavan has been the best. It is not one of the bloated highly marketed restaurant, but owes its name exclusively due to the quality. Amazing that you discovered the place in your brief visit.

    Wish I was there. If only all guidebooks were like this. You know the place very well and give a unique insight to both the obvious and the hidden places.

    A great piece, Liz.You have managed to give a ‘bread and butter’ type of piece plenty of punch with witty titles, interesting asides, an appeal to the senses and a neat turn of phrase. I’ve read this one with particular interest as I will have to write something in a similar style this weekend – and it’s not my usual approach to writing!
