What I had to pay attention to was the feeling of heart that wasn’t satisfied yet in witnessing the busyness of the local fishermen who were absorbed in taking care of their catch.
The sun had begun to slip from its highest point, slowly losing its sting, bowing to the twilight that begins to rule the day.
Meanwhile I, with a heavy heart, got up from my seat under the tent that was set up a few fathoms from the beach. A while later I had joined myself in the increasingly bustling currents of River Road. The flow of travelers seemed to refer to the preparation of natural attractions which were none other than the setting of the sun on the western horizon, all of which would occur in the next few hours. The clear sky seemed to be fully supporting the natural attractions later that afternoon.
Not only tourists, but the decline of the sun from the highest throne combined with the calm coast of Fort Kochi also made a flock of crows land on the ground and enjoyed the atmosphere. That black animal seemed to dissolve in joy by busily scavenging for food from the leftovers that had fallen from the travelers’ grasp, one or two of them seemed busy collecting fallen hanging roots which I suspected would be used to make nests and the rest were just busy chirping in thanks for the cool afternoon.
Then I was stunned at an inscription on the side of the road. I nodded reading stroke after scratch inscribed on the inscription. Meanwhile, other travelers joined in following my actions. Of course, they also wanted to understand the important information contained in the inscription. Let’s just say, the travelers and I understood it pretty well in the end.
Let’s forcibly conclude that the inscription is the token of endorsement of the garden plot in front of me. Inside, residents seemed to be enjoying the coolness of the park by leaning on the available benches, some others were seen sitting on concrete benches scattered at several points.
City parks……Why do I like presenting myself in that type of landscape?
Guys…..To find out the life atmosphere of the lower middle class, then looking at the city parks in the area concerned could be the most effective step apart from visiting the traditional markets. Therefore, a city park is a type of destination that can’t be separated from my stopover goals wherever I explore.
Entering it, at all points, fish sculptures seemed to dominate the park architecture which according to my observations had an area of no less than two hectares.
Of course, a conclusion can be drawn…..Fish is a symbol of the main livelihood of the people of Fort Kochi who inhabit the Malabar Coastline.
The age of the trees that shade the entire park from the sun could probably describe how old the park was. And somehow the joy of the park in the night because of the presence of lampposts in all directions.
The concept is intended for children, of course, children’s playgrounds are installed massively throughout the park’s area. Slides, swivel chairs, and swings are standard rides.
Taking a seat on one of the benches, I casually enjoyed the authenticity of a row of typical Portuguese historic buildings across to the south. These classic buildings stand elegantly along Tower Road even though they have been converted into four-star inns.
The classic style of the Portuguese buildings seemed to transport me into the 19th century. For example, the red-dominated Koder House and the white-dominated Old Harbor Hotel represent a European touch on the coast of Fort Kochi.
While on the west side of the interior, I could see the existence of a post in the form of a large tent with the title Green Cochin Mission. This is the program promoted by the city government as the main movement to liberate Kochi from the city’s garbage disaster. It turns out that not only in Indonesia, in India it’s the same, garbage has become a complicated problem that has never been completely resolved.
Meanwhile, on the north side, River Road looked busier with souvenir shops and local snacks. Then to the east of the park was the beginning of the legendary street….Princess Street.
Come on, let’s explore Princess Street….What’s going on?
