Next Day
Public ferries shuttle up and down Kerala's inland waterways. We don't want to use trains and buses when water transport is so easily available, so we ride a ferry for destinations further south.
The ferry ride from Allappuzha to Kollam takes eight hours. More coconut palms, rice paddies, cashew plantations, and villagers that wave to us from the canal banks...
Hundreds of chinese fishing nets hang like the claws of a sea monster over Kollam's canal route.
Banana leaf breakfast.
