    Her father, the captain, and all the Spanish soldiers pursued the lovers up to the high cliff above Tumon Bay. The lovers found themselves trapped between the edge of the cliff and the approaching soldiers. All the young warrior could do was warn them to stay back, and the father ordered the soldiers to halt.

    The lovers tied their long black hair into a single knot. And acting as if they were entirely alone, they looked deeply into each other's eyes and kissed for the final time. Then they leaped over the long, deep cliff into the roaring waters below.
    Her father and all who remained rushed to the edge to stare in great anguish.

    Since that day, Chamorros have looked to the jutting peak above Tumon Bay with reverence. The two lovers remain a symbol of true love--a love in which two souls are entwined forever in life and in death. Forever after, the high point on the cliff was known as Two Lovers Point.

    One of the canals of old Kochi a short distance before it reaches the Arabian Sea. This is one of the features of the city reminding of it past as a Dutch colony.

    A truck loaded with jute navigating the narrow alleys of old Cochin. Note the name of the street, Jew Cemetery Lane. Cochin has one of the oldest Jewish communities in Asia, but today only a handful of members remain, most others having emigrated to Israel. There is still a basically functioning synagogue. The Jewish community in Cochin featured in the Salman Rushdie novel The Moor's Last Sigh.

    Followers of DMK, the first local party that reached power in an Indian state. In 1988, when this photo was taken, they were in the opposition but in the state elections in Tamil Nadu the following year they got back into power. I have no idea what this bicycle rally concerned. I was mainly surprised to realize this was taken inside the temple complex. I didn't remember that at all.

    Clearly amused at having their photo taken by a foreigner. I met them by the large temple tank (pool) below the temple complex of the Rockfort in the centre of Trichy.

    Here is the poor quality shot showing its present condition. I tried to get inside, but the fence around it was too tall and too sharp, i would have easily cut myself climbing over it so i reluctantly backed out.

    Personally, I really like this photo, probably even more than the main post.

    Here you can see a bit more of the landscape surrounding the rocks. there is a very very small harbour on the bottom left, but not really worthy of a post. Still, it was fun finding this place.
