Floating on a houseboat along the Kerala backwaters was one of the most relaxing experiences yet as I sat watching the village life unfold : women and man fish right in front of their homes, coconut fish curry smells waft in the air, and between quiet moments of timelessness speakers from Hindu temples,mosques and Christian churches blare chant like prayers in the air.

In the morning everyone steps in the water and washes and scrubs themselves first,then the women soap and beat the clothes on big flat rocks. Water for cooking comes from the same place and after eating everything gets washed right there, in the fresh waters of the ‘backwaters’.
