Arabian Sea and Arabian nights

DAY 18 / 19 Kovalam, Kerala, INDIA
We set off for the 85 km trip to Kovalam along past the rice workers on the road, bagging up the dried rice, their bright shirts as cheery as their smiles...




We love the Indian people, even when life seems in a right pickle, there is still something to grin about...




Traveling back through the town of Alleppy we spot the giant house boats popular for cruising along the backwaters.....




Kovalam is a popular beach area overlooking the Arabian Sea. We stop off to take in the views and the sunset from Lighthouse beach and explore a hotel that one of our group had enjoyed 30 years ago. Little had changed in the intervening years and despite initial plans that we might also stay, we decided to move on.




Hotel Niraamaya, Kovalam is very nice.....




With a gorgeous infinity pool overlooking the beach, a perfect place to relax for a couple of days....




We take a trip into Kovalam to The Leela for cocktails




Aargh, this is the life.....
