Fort Cochin - India - 9.11.13

Our last two days are fairly relaxed.  A trip on the local ferries proved very interesting except we ended up on the wrong island on the return trip - the navy base but nobody really cared about us wandering around.

The harbour trip from Erkulam ( ) around the harbour was quiet mudane with the highlight a visit to their new "container shipping wharves"

That night we go to a traditional Kathakali Dance Performance.  It is absolutely superb with the actors applying their makeup on stage to demonstrate the amount of work that goes into the performance.

The performance is spell binding and all the parts are played by males.  The music is drums and other traditional instruments with the only singer providing the vocals.  Hopefully we will produce the video when we get back to Australia.
