One of the 'must' in Kerala state is sailing in the backwater.
The backwater is a natural net of canals connected to the Arabian sea.
All around are coco trees, bananas trees and other plantations. Of course, small villages all around.
There are all sorts of tours (it is very touristic), I did the 'villages tour' for whole day when you sail and stop once in a while to watch some methods of making a living. It seems that the natives exploit all available resources. For example, in addition of selling the coco nuts they also make ropes from the coco nuts hair. Another example, they make cement from shells, etc.
Nothing more interesting to tell, so enjoy watching the pictures!
