    Great post mate! It goes on to show the wealth of beauty in Kerala especially Alleppey ( also the venice of the east )

    I hope you were able to see students going to school on boats and local markets floating in the backwaters. What a sight!!

    Reading your post brought back pleasant memories of our own trip to Kochi last year. We enjoyed the backwaters and had an awesome boat cruise as the sun rose over the waters. We would love to go back to Alleppey next time.
