Where I stayed
Keralan House Boat
The pics and vids speak for themselves but it is the most relaxing 3 days and 2 nights you can have being driven around the backwaters watching indian farm life continue oblivious to the rest of the world and any recession thats going on. We had a driver and chef neither of which spoke any english but made us feel welcome and helped us fish off the side of the boat and try to communicate through a lot of sign language! I was still the royal nut taster for Alex incase the chef tried to sneak any nuts into our food and when everything is made with cocnuts its a pretty tricky job.
Most memorable moment of the few days was driving through a flock of about 1000 ducks on the river while the farmers where loading boats with rice - the sound was deafening!
