When people think of India, a lot of times they instantly think overpopulation and too much pollution (though when I first think of India I think of the amazing smells, sounds, sights, etc). While this image of India is certainly true, you will not find either along the Kerala Coast. There you will find, in my humble opinion, probably the gentlest, most idyllic, and socially interesting corner of India. As we continued to sail along the Alleppey backwaters, we took excitement in the constantly changing views.
Around midday we were fed the most amazingly delicious lunch. I have been a strict vegetarian for over a decade now, but even I could not resist the fresh, organic fish that they had prepared in a coconut sauce for us. After the meal, I found a comfortable spot next to the captain where I was able to recover from the feast.
How could you not fall in love with a place where every single person you pass by energetically waves to you, like you are their dearest friend?
As we neared the end of our boat ride, I made a silent promise to myself to return to Southern India one day. This part of the world definitely deserved more of my time and next time I would use Kerala Tour Packages.
And before I knew it, we were back on the plane headed to the north again. This time it would be to Mumbai, the last stop on our trip.
Did you get to go inside the cathedral?
Gorgeous church, I love the brilliant colors. Glad to see you have your design back!
What a beautiful post!
