Well here we are cruising off Cochin waiting for a pilot to take us in. I’ve had my first glimpse of India...A row of lights in the soft light of dawn and the inevitable array of vessels from the tiny fishing boats I photographed earlier to the big bulk carriers... We’ll be off the blog for the next three days ...tonight we are in Delhi . We went through the immigration inspection yesterday and have our ports packed so we can be the first group off the ship around 7:45am...this is the start of our long, busy days on the sub continent. We take a five hour flight to Delhi this morning and tour the city this afternoon. Then after a 4:30am start tomorrow we travel by train to Agra and our visit to the Taj Mahal at sunset. Next morning its back to Delhi by coach and among other things a rickshaw ride through Delhi streets..before catching an airline flight back to Mumbai to board the ship just before sailing around 10:30 pm...The mobile phone should be back in action once we are ashore...Till Thursday...This is the fishing fleet... 60 odd of these little boats are currently heading out past us for the days fishing...quite spectacular!
