If you like nice little streets with character, the streets around Fort Kochi (the homestay was located here) and the Jewish town are places to be.
We were lucky that we got to see Sunday morning service in progress when we visited the historical St Francis church.
I felt our stay in Cochin (two days) was too short as I wanted to visit the Jewish town when the light was good but we just could not make it on time and the shops there close very early (5:30pm if I remember right). There went some good photo-opportunities. All I had was snaps of the streets in harsh light.
To completely absorb the essence of Cochin and walk unhurriedly through the silent streets, we need at least two or three days in this place. Good we did not take a package tour.
