Kochi Local Buses

Local buses have no glasses on windows! Instead pieces of cloth are seen rolled up on the inside of the windows, which might act as curtains. This might be due to the heat and humidity in the region.

Cemeteries

I like looking at old cemeteries, because they tell you who roamed the streets that you are walking today. Unfortunately I could not get a closer look at the tombs as gates to both cemeteries I visited were closed.
