During my trip throughout Kerala, we had a one-night stay in Munnar. After a long bus ride, we were given either two hours to explore or we could head to the local liquor store (there was only one in the town) to buy some drinks for the evening. I played my cards right and had someone buy me a few beers while I went and explored the markets and streets of Munnar. I did my best not to get run over on the busy streets while composing shots although I think I may have been in the way more often than not.

A bustling market was full of action as the sun slowly set in the city. Being a huge tea plantation region, there were bags and bags of tea being loaded off of trucks as well as other vegetables. An assembly line of men hurried around organizing the stock from the truck to the shelves. 

The next morning we once again had the opportunity to be dropped off by the bus and walk back to the hotel in an hour or to take the bus back to the hotel and relax. A number of us jumped at the opportunity and once again, I explored the markets. This time I went a little deeper and somehow ended up in the livestock section of the market. I am a bit of a city kid so it was the first time I had seen a duck or a chicken have its neck cut off, but it was just another day for the locals in Munnar.

I also watched the head of a decapitated goat be sliced down the middle by a butcher who seemed as fascinated about me as I did his goat head. 

The video is only a short little recap but I only had a couple of hours to shoot in the market. I also shot a few portraits inMunnar, which I will put below the video.
