Crazy Coconuts in Cochin by Josie

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!!!

Can you spot George?

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!)

Dad drinking coconut milk

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!!!

Check out the freshly made spoon!

Eating the tasty coconut flesh: yum!

    Splendid blog Josie. Great photos. Don’t think I liked coconut milk either – far as I remember it was very watery. Keep sending your blogs – I am enjoying them very much. Love to all. GrannyPat xxxx

    Hi Josie
    Really great photos, George looks very relaxed amongst the coconuts, hope you remembered to pick him up. We tried fresh coconut when we were in Thailand, we’d had a storm and lots had fallen off the trees so the restaurant owner let us try them but we didn’t like them either!
    Really enjoying reading what you’ve been doing and seeing your photos – so keep sending them.

    Dear Josie,
    Enjoying the photographs and comments – I love coconuts fresh out of the shell (pity they are so difficult to get at). George is enjoying the trip it seems! Hope everything is okay where you are now. Lots of love from Nana and Grandad.
