This was taken in Alleppy - Kerala , traditionally the boats resemble the ones in current pic. However ours was covered , had an airconditioner , 3 rooms/ one dining hall and a TV ...& was partly powered as well Whow talk of time change...and luxuries. I tried my hand on navigating the boat, however seeing the guy using a long oar.... and steering the boat...amazing...and for me oooff...nah...not possible ...something best to leave to experts !!

Brought back memories of my trip to the backwaters. My parents were real hesitant at first, but once we were on the boat they thoroughly enjoyed.

Cool picture.
