Your photo is beautiful, and so is the boat. I love to see boats from different countries, and how they reflect the people who built them.

Kerala is truly "God Own Country" did you know Kerala has even more canals than Venice? Just that Venice has been portrayed as a romantic destination and Kerala the Mystic land of the Gods
