Dear all,

They say an image is sometimes better than words - here’s the video. The outcome of two days of interviews, filming and walking around Dharavi. One million people, one square mile:

Hallo!

How's everybody doing?

When I started writing this e-mail I was about to put my bikini on, open the terrace door of our room and walk towards a lovely infinity-pool. We've been relaxing in Muhamma, Kerala during the past days in a fantastically located resort called Lime Tree. It's taken us quite some time, but we've finally found the silent, chilled place we were looking for.

Good early morning from our Cottage in Alleppey, Kerala!

Yes, this is beautiful. I was just woken up by the very, very heavy rain. Finally! Some proper monsoon rains!
We're having a really good time in the state of Kerala. Cochin was a bit more calm than Mumbai and Alleppey definitely seems to be even more tranquile.

I guess I didn't write for some time. Sorry about that! We've been having loads of fun and very little quiet time.

These are the diaries written on an overused Blackberry of the trials and tribulations of a European couple that traveled to India in the summer of 2013. Sit back, relax and let yourself guide through the streets of Mumbai, Cochin and many more.
