Vembanadu Lake in Kochi, India, never fail to fascinate. Watching vessels drifting in the green waters gave a kind of tranquility. Freightliners with containers stacked or even a fishing boat that is either going to the sea for the anticipated catch or returning after a long night in the cold. The smell of the sea on the face with occasional cries of the seagulls. One may prefer to wander along the coast. A better way would be to watch the waters enjoying a fresh lemonade or and hot masala chai (tea made with milk, sugar and spices like cardamom, fennel, pepper corns and cinnamon). In this case, choosing the hot beverage seemed to be the better option.
