Yesterday's note about India, reminded me what an wonderful place Kerala is and what a great time we had there at the end of 2003 and the beginning of 2004.

It is certainly an idiosyncratic place. In 1957, it voted in the first democratically elected Communist government anywhere in the world. I imagine that the CPI, in the photograph below that I took there, refers to the Commumnist Party of India. I wonder if there are many other places in the world these days where you are presented with the hammer and sickle in day to day politics.

Kerala Hammer and Sickle
