Embarking On Adventure

________________

When setting off on any trip from Fort Cochin, first you must reach the mainland.
The ferry can cut miles of congested city roads and bridges from your route.

Local ferries are small and invariably there’s a queue of cars, 2-wheelers and auto-rickshaws waiting.
The first boat to arrive usually fills well before it is your turn to embark.
Twenty minutes of gently excited anticipation are part of the conditions of travel.

Escapology Made Easy

________________

The hall maybe out-of-bounds but a bedroom cannot hold me.

My house under decorative siege is an awesome place.

I escape its confines by taking the ferry.

Fair Blows The Wind For Home

________________

Our long journey is almost over.

Now we wait for the ferry.

Crossing the waters will finally bring us home.

Soave sia il vento:

“May the wind blow softly,
The waves be calm,
And all of nature’s power help you gently reach your home.”
