Paradise not lost.
This is Vypeen, in Kochi from Kerala, India.
You could sit out in the balcony and watch this beautiful scenery like I did on my vacation, while fishing trawlers move hither-wither, the sea gulls roaming above keeping their eyes zeroed on the fishnets down below the deck of the fishing boats.
The salty wind blowing on the chinese fishing nets making it flutter like skirts of girls in the wind...the occasional speedboats of the tourists with European women in colourful skirts sitting on the deckchairs of the boats.
The coconut palms swaying in the breeze making a whistling sound like the sound of the ancient wind wheels.
Away, in the front, I could see Panambukadu as they call it locally, a virtual island now with only coconut palms.
Once it was thickly populated only with Bamboo, hence the name Panambukadu. Panambu is Bamboo in the local tongue.
I had an eyeful...and another...and another...
