Christmas Shopping in Cochi.

We had some time in Cochi before catching a flight to Delhi, so we went to the local markets where it was a frenzy of Christmas Shopping. Hawkers were selling every kind of Christmas decoration possible and there were shops full of stars, tinsel, trees and decorations.

Lots of spice shops trading star anise, cloves, cinnamon, coriander, vanilla pods, pepper, nutmeg, etc etc so it even smelt like Christmas as we walked along.

Santa's sack!
Nativity scene? Take your pick.
Does this look weird to you?
