The Malabar Coast of Kerala is famous for the Backwaters, where channels and canals link the lakes and inlets along half of the length of this South India State. This is where I will be taking in the sun and relaxing on a kettuvallam in a couple of weeks time…. bliss
The kettuvallams are wooden hulled houseboats that take you at a gentle pace through the waterways. On my last visit here we became stuck a couple of times in channels blocked by dense banks of floating water hyacinth. I don’t know if I will be able to update the blog while I’m in India but I hope to post enough to cover the time away.
