ABC Wednesday - I is for ...

These fisher men are loading ice on the fishing boat, Beypure, Indian Ocean, India, January 2009

The ice plant, Beypure

The ice master

Preparing for a long time at sea

Ice in India is my ABC Wednesday

While traveling in India we spend seven weeks in the Khozikode (or Calicut) in Kerala. We love to stay and get in contact with the locals. Our friend Rajesh showed us around. One day we went to Beypure. To the cold place of this ice plant, to the hot harbor and to the lovely beach. A great day. A very special Indian day.
