04/12/08 to 05/12/08: A quick overnight stop at Fort Cochin before getting the sleeper train to Goa was enough for us. The little old colonial town over looking the harbour is very pretty. Reminds us a bit of portsea. Enjoyed a stroll along the waters edge watching the fishermen pull in their huge man made chinese fishing net in. A gorgous little place but one night is enough here for us. Off to the mainland to catch a train in about 6hrs. We will be interested to see what our beds will be like and are looking forwards to the sunny stretch of beaches.
