Kerala, in southern India, is a dry state, which
is a bit surprising since it’s such a belter of a
tourist attraction. But there are a few bars, if
you know where to go, and if your hotel is
blessed with India Pale Ale, you're home and
not-so-dry, as it were. So what has developed
locally is a nudge-nudge wink-wink system of
‘tea-shops’ where your ‘tea’ comes in a
‘tea’-pot and smells and tastes very much like
the pint that you really wanted in the first
place. Presumably the hallowed joke is sanctioned by the state authorities, or a blind eye
is being turned - as to so much else in India.
This shot, however, was in an actual tea-shop where you got tea (and cake), a busy
establishment in the centre of Kochi, the famous spice market of Old Cochin. I had to
wait ages, as I crouched on the floor, for the criss-cross of thirsty tourists and waiters to
stop for a moment to get this ¼-second hand-held shot of a wall of old kettles. I did take
the liberty of moving the newer kettle into the middle, and later wished I hadn’t as the
burnished metal refused all my efforts to render any detail.
