The Backwaters

We took the ferry from Alleppey to Kotayam and back. It is 2 hour ride there. and 2 more hours back.

Boat in the backwaters
There a some fancy boats for tourist, built in a traditional way. But we preferred the normal ferry.In the Ferry
The locals use the ferry as a way of transportation. Some american and European travelers were also there.

The backwaters
There are many houses in the channel.  The small channels are full with water plants. The waters don't move much so it gives the impression of a green garden. The woman on the image just finished a bath on the channel. She took the bath fully dressed.
