Grabbed lunch from the supermarket- good old staple of crisp sarnies 😉 Walked down to tourist place to get bus that would take us to canoe place. There were 4 other people on our tour; another couple (guy was from Sheffield) and two girls. Sat on bus chatting about where we'd been and where we were going. Just before setting off an Indian girl in her teens started taking pics of the 6 pale English people in a van haha. The canoe was quite big and we sat relaxig on there for a good couple of hours, the guide ferrying us through a series of backwater canals from where we could see the little backwater villages. We got off the canoe a couple of times to see things like canoe boats being made, a fish farm, cashew trees and pineapple trees/plants(?). It was very scenic and a great way to see the area.

We felt knackered when we got back probably the heat and a little dehydration.
