We stayed at Fort Kochi for two nights at Good Karma Homestay. On one of the days we went on a ferry (small one) and it only cost us 3p each (2 rupees). When we got off the ferry we walked past a stall crowded with lots of locals. When we finally pushed through the crowd (it wasn’t easy) we saw a man next to a big pile of coconuts!!!
I chose a big green coconut and gave it to the man and first he chiseled a small hole in it and then stuck in a straw. He passed it back to me, I didn’t really like it (unlike Dad who drank it for me!)
When there was no juice left in it we gave it back to the man who then chopped the coconut in half to reveal white squidgy coconut flesh then he chopped off a bit of coconut shell and gave it to us as a spoon!!!
