Kollam was one of the places I absolutely loved last time I was here. I couldn’t really explain why, I just got a good vibe from it! Luckily as you can see from previous posts it didn’t disappoint. One of the things I didn’t have time to do before was go to a match box factory, so I really wanted to this time. Unfortunately it turns out that most match box factories have been removed from Kerala into Tamil Nadu because the ‘gunpowder’ tip couldn’t be applied safely and was making people ill!

Anyway, our lovely Tuk Tuk driver Francis managed to find out where they still make the wooden part of the match stick and took us there to have a nosey.
