framing suggestion:
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.
