How Many Men …?

 … does it take to put two bikes on the roof of a car?
Here we go – just arrived in India and we feel like we are in a completely different world.

The Yellow Shop

How many bananas?
Moses says two hundred as this is the highest number that he can count up to.
Martin’s happy as bananas are a specialty of Kerala.

Fishing Nets

This method of fishing using huge poles with nets to haul out fish has been used for over 700 years
– it seemed to be quite successful whilst we were watching!


Martin and Moses join the evening service in Hindi to say a short prayer.

Tug of War!

Not quite  – but it really sounds like it as the fishermen haul the boat out of the water on rollers they really do shout “Heave Ho!”
– well the Hindi equivalent.


Today’s games are exploring the canoes, walking or hopping poles and fishing rods.


Herbe’s claiming this coconut whilst Moses and Caspar perform their “spin the coconut” tricks.

The Bike Way

Usually the guests arrive by boat to this backwater resort but with bikes we were able to reach it through the back lanes by bike.

Backwater Bliss

Watching the world go by from the backwaters of Alleppey.

Paddle Boat

Cycling across the backwater to get a closer look at the houseboats.
