Photographer's Note

Almost exactly ten years old photo. Of course, I was inspired again by Gert's photo from kerala backwaters. When I am sitting at home for longer time, waiting impatiently for new supply of photos, I am easily influenced by other people pics and look for something in my archive.
After rather tiring trip in south India, in March it was too late and it was very hot, we haven't seen any Western tourists, when we finally came to Kerala it was like in paradise. And specially the lazy two days on a houseboat. They are very comfortable, with two sleeping rooms and cook makes all the meals (washing the dishes in canal, I did not wanted to know from where he took water). During the day, just lazy sitting in deckchair and observing the life on the shore, then in the evening the boat moors somewhere near the village and one can make a nice walk. And an early morning was also delightful. The population came to the water to wash, the laundry and themselves, also teeth. It is not specially expensive so I recommend it for all.
Now, after many years, I like here the sign about the public phones. When all people (except my husband) have mobiles, it is no needed any more.

The view of the

houseboats , and
ordinary boat like that used by Gert.
