Backwaters are a particular feature of Kerala - interconnected lakes and rivers, lagoons, inlets, canals... there is a map here.
We had a couple of boat trips around some of these beautiful waters during our visit.
As well as wonderful trees - coconut and banana everywhere - and flowers - pond weed and lotus in the water, orchids on the banks -
there was wildlife everywhere : kingfishers, cormorants and kites, cows and goats wandering around,
beautiful butterflies and dragonflies / damselflies.
And there was also human life by, around, in and on the water.
There are houses along the banks of the various waterways
and the landscape was peacefully busy with colourful washing fluttering and people washing themselves, their clothes
their pots and pans
and generally coming and going around on their everyday business.
