Enroute to Thekkady, Perriyar we stopped by the roadside to watch men making bricks. If you ever wondered, bricks (in India anyway) are made from clay and water that is mixed by the feet and then formed into a ball that is dropped (with some force) into a mold.

Today we got up at 0600 to take a boat trip hoping to catch a glimpse of wild elephants drinking on Lake Periyar. No show from the elephants, but we did see an excellent collection of colourful birds and Samba deer.

I am on one of the bigger boats, which has ...
