After a break our second journey will be more in the Armchair Traveller mode as we visit Cochin in the South of India. It was in the Cochin area that the first Christian missions were established on the Malabar Coast. This was also the hub of activity for the early spice traders whose cargoes were sold for fortunes in Europe. I will also show video of a Kerala “backwater” trip enabling you to see a little of village life in India.
I hope you can join us for this our only Railway Journey for semester one.
