Where I stayed
On the house boat
We stopped at St Marys Church at champagulam and looked around listening to the bizarre chanted prayers. It is so relaxing just meandering along the backwaters watching people bathing, washing dishes, washing clothes in the river. We also watched a group of naked teenage boys wrestling in the water which was strange.
We had a lunch of fried fish in a marinade, dhals, poppadoms etc then sailed for a few more hours
We watched the fires in the fields and fireworks going off everywhere for the festival and watched a slow and gorgeous Sunset. Then the lizards came out to eat our arch enemies the flys, midgies and mozzies. The crew sealed off the dining area with mosquito nets which helped no end with Kerelas bountiful buglife. I think we both agree that we had chosen the perfect boat for us, 1 bedroom but a balcony with both shade and sunshine where we could escape from the crew and captain and have our own space. Thanks Mum and Dad this is great.
