Calicut – Kerala.

I got into Calicut just before mid-day and had some dinner near the bus station. Then I found my hotel and went out to get some money. On the way I found the Sunday markets where they were selling all sorts of stuff, second-hand and new.

In the afternoon I went for a walk to the estuary and poked around the river mouth and the beach.

Going to sea

I used to do this many years ago. Heading out to sea every night, punching a nor’easter home. No fish and a wet arse.

This Black Kite was just sitting on a rock close to some fishermen. I do not know why it did not fly away.

Late in the evening as the sun was going down, these fishermen were still sorting out their nets.
