It seemed cool on our deck while sipping morning coffee before 7 a.m. the other morning and that was because the temperatures had 'dipped' into the mid 80's and humidity to the low 90's. Yesterday the temperature in Cochin was 94 and the humidity 97%. Far more intense than Arizona in the summer or Puerto Vallarta in September.

For those of you not on Facebook, I've been posting regular updates there - many of which show me wearing the same top in almost every photo taken (see above). It is the coolest one I brought with me - a tee shirt that soaks up the sweat (to put it bluntly) and that can be hand-washed between shore excursions. There's a lot of wearing and washing going on this trip by all of us - it is a nice feature of the ship to offer washing machines, dryers, and irons for guest use.

Many of us opted to explore Cochin on our own and others chose the comfort of the air-conditioned ship-organized bus tours.

Heat and humidity aside, this is an amazing part of the world to visit. When back in the blogosphere world again I will show you more photos of the wonderful places we've been -- and yes, places that call our for return visits.
Thanks for keeping us in your thoughts as you read the world headlines. We remain hot, humid, healthy and most definitely happy we chose this routing! Safe travels to you and yours~ and to my fellow bloggers, I will get caught up with your blogs once we are again on land and I've got some time for reading.
