Day 206: The Kerala backwaters

Today, my friend Francois and I spent the day in the beautiful Kerala backwaters. Parts of the canals were covered in so many water-lilies that you can’t see the water.

Day 196: Hampi

I arrived in the town of Hampi this morning after taking the (non-)sleeper bus from Goa. As the sun rose local men and women came to wash, themselves and their clothes, in the river.

Hampi is the former capital of the Vijayanangara Empire and is home to numerous hindu temples, mainly built in the 16th century.
