During my visit to India last month, I took a few informal videos of Cochin and Alleppey, including an interior tour of an overnight houseboat. Many of our clients often ask about the houseboat experience, including the layout of the boat and descriptions of the backwater canals. In my previous post, Kettuvallams in Kerala, I wrote about 24 hours on a houseboat in Alleppey - Savoring the meals prepared and served on board by a private cook, observing the village life along the canals, and watching the sunset over the palm trees and rice paddies. Here is an interior tour of the kettuvallam:
As we were cruising along, we heard the beautiful evening prayers from a village temple. The speaker was fixed to a palm tree and the prayers resonated throughout the backwater canals:
Later this week, I will post videos from my time in Cochin, including a Kathakali dance performance and the Chinese fishing nets.
