Rahil in Kerala

Rahil flew down to Kerala on December 8th and stayed for five nights -- the first three in Kochi, at the historic and fabulously-located Old Harbour Hotel, and two nights at the posh Zuri Resort and Spa in Kumarakom. Highlights included watching the fishermen come in with their catch, finding a kitten, taking a boat on the backwaters, strolling along the shore, and attending a Kathakali dance performance.

The photos shown below are presented in chronological order.
