On this tour we follow a canal and pick up stories from along the canal. This is the story of thousands of ships which came in-to this part of the world looking for this tiny piece of land we fondly call Kochi. People came searching for exotic spices and riches untold making this tiny hamlet into a bustling metropolis. Folklore unfolds here talking about the stories of lands afar and near. The trade opportunities created by Kochi was so immense that this tiny hamlet quickly became the choice destination of trade competing with all the other big trade destinations in India! The traders brought with them their languages, their music, their food and their smells! Many of these traders are long gone, but their essence still lingers in the air! One little canal became the central vein coursing through the heart of Kochi. People of all walks of life scrambled to find a foothold by the banks of this canal, every square inch of land being used. The banks were filled with merchants selling their wares; power brokers negotiating deal
