We are back after our four day trip to the Kerala backwaters. The backwaters are beautiful. Tranquil and teeming with the yummiest fish and shrimp. Kerala is also famous for its Ayurvedic treatments and I had the most heavenly massage I have ever had in my life. The resort we stayed at, called Coconut Lagoon is absolutely stunning. Very eco-friendly and people-friendly. I highly recommend a trip to the backwaters of Kerala, once in your lifetime. It is fascinating to see how the fishermen and farmers (rice and bananas) all stay along the canals and rivers. They all have canoes instead of bikes or cars and have to row to work (farming or fishing), row to school, row to the store.. everywhere. No wonder they all looked like they were in really good shape!
Only a few more days before we return from India. sniff.
