Hi Guys

After a quick get away from Kochi (Cochin) we arrived in Allepey where we found a really nice home stay for the night. In the morning we headed down to the back waters to try and hire a one double bedroom house boat for the night. We were lucky and found a punting all inclusive house boat with our own Chef and crew that was a little over priced, but it was New Years eve. We packed our things and set off for the back waters at around 12 noon.

We had a lovely time on the backwaters catching fire flies and dancing with the kids, who were having a New Years eve party on a jetty near to where we moored for the night. They even managed to get Vic to rendition them with "We wish you a Merry Christmas" after I chickened out.

Unfortunately New Years eve was a repetition of Christmas Night as Vic's tummy decided that it did not like chefs cooking, and with no running water and tissue we both had a long night.

We headed back to Allepey in the morning where we caught an auto rickshaw to Kottayam.
