Two minutes

Good friend

The communist party in Kerala seems to be quite strong. Red flags with hammer and sickle are waving alongside the road from the airport to the city. On billboards you can see the faces of Che, Marx and if I’m not mistaken Lenin.
The taxi driver said: “I have good friend who sells best coconuts in town. Let’s stop for two minutes.”

I’m afraid that the economy of Kerala is not a planned economy, despite all the flags and billboards.
