Goats eating a poster, I have heard of this but never actually seen it, amazing!

Fishermen down by the Chinese fishing nets at Fort Kochin, I love how the nets look like cotton when they are all bunched up.

One of the chinese fishing nets coming out of the water. When the lower it into the water, one of the fishermen running the net walks down one of the poles to lower it in the water, amazing to see.

Some of the fishermen of one net invited me up onto the net. They wanted me to help them pull the net up, but I convinced them that that would be a bad idea and that instead I should photograph them while they did it! These are the weights that hold the net up out of the water when they pull it up, these rocks are huge.

These men pull the net up in a completely practiced motion of heaving and ho-ing and chanting too, it was really cool to watch them. They swing from side to side when they are pulling on the ropes. I was surprised when a big rock came lowering down close to my face, I had completely forgotten about them and was glad I hadn't moved around much.
