    ... close to the water - we were in the prime viewing spot for this. This is the India I wanted to see - I'm so impressed with what the Parks and Forest Service is doing here. Apparently there are tigers in the reserve, but these are not usually seen by tourists. Although I would love to see a tiger, I appreciate that this place is a wildlife reserve and not a zoo. Good news - our hotel has a 'beer bar' so we availed ourselves of this before ...

    ... get them so one isn't worth it". As you can see from the tiring conversation that's probably a bit hard for you to follow, we walked away with no beer. We sat at the top of the boat reading while we cruised to where we'd dock for the night. There were 8 geckos on the boat and a whole lotta bugs, we played card games and had dinner at 8pm.

    ... a new line in the tree which then drips latex for approx. two hours. He collects all the latex and tips it into a large "bidon" which is then taken back to a hut where the latex is put through a sieve, mixed with water and formic acid. This mixture is then put out in trays which then harden into "mats" which are put out on a line to dry. We passed several lines with these mats drying and they looked exactly like a row of nappies. The mats are then smoked in ...

    I am always intensely curious about the daily lives of the people I see in the different countries we visit, and going on a houseboat down the backwaters (canals) of Kerela gave me a peek into the lifestyle of the people who live along the waterways. We observed families fishing, bathing, and doing their laundry in the water. There were temples, churches and stores dotted along the shore.
