Kochi Date Night
Kochi Marina Date Night
A swim in the hot pool after a day of chores, I cheekily suggested supper at the hotel. Well in fairness forty-four degrees outside temperature, the air con aboard fights to keep the lounge at thirty-three degrees - soon increasing the second the cooker goes into action. And, it is all you can eat for seven pounds. I have to make a bed of rice, half fill it with yoghurt and add a few pieces of meat – no sauce and mix with a little cucumber and tomato. Hot (as in spicy) enough. Bear went back for seconds followed by red pudding (a red and white spongy-creamy thing that was delicious) and ice cream.
Bear got the purse out to pay and I looked at some of the notes. A five hundred Rupee or £5.53.
The fifty Rupee note or 55 pence
The five Rupee note or five and a half pence.
A double room at the Bolgatty Island Resort begin at £39 plus £7 tax and go up to about £180.
I still wonder at the choice of art throughout the foyer of the hotel, old classics and the first one from the front door - The Jewish Bride by Rembrandt, painted around 1667.
Heading toward the front door it seemed a shame to pass an airport-type security machine and outside a body metal detector.
Down the drive to our building.
The gardens are very well kept.
Back to Beez at the marina, night security man saluted.
