A trip down the Kerala Backwaters....

... around the island as well as a boat canoe down the backwaters at sunset... The island had a population of 6,000 people living in 5 villages.

A travel blog entry by gapyearat41


... wasn't ready so we had breakfast , toast and boiled eggs and tea. Sitting on the pagodas over the water was lovely , the hotel is in a lovely garden setting, the usual crows hanging around for left overs , one dog and then we saw a mongoose ( or similar!) just strolling along the path.

We finally got our room , its realy clean with a great terrace and will do just fine for a few weeks.
Off to explore after a shower.
