Kerala Cruising

Kerala Cruising

I’ve previously talked about the backwaters of Kerala in India, and how I’d love to take one of their houseboat cruises.

The contrast between the colourful, noisy, and chaotic Indian town of Alleppey, and the majesty and serenity of the lakes, rivers and canals beginning a few hundred metres away could not be greater. India is an acquired taste, to be sure, but I was enchanted by the waterways, with their jungled fringes, their tiny villages, their fields, fisherfolk, and birdlife.
