A & I are in the backwater of Kerala for the Nehru Cup Snake Boat races. Our hotel faces the Race Course, far across Vembanadu Lake. We won’t get a good view of the boat race from our terrace (the viewing pavilions block our view & it’s rather far) but we secured grand stand tickets near the finish line. In the meantime, we can see lots of activity. This is our hotel:
This is the race course & pavilions across the lake (the red roof pavilion to the left of the multi-story hotel is where we will be this afternoon):
Our view this morning was a man in a local style canoe & fishing net casting about 30 feet from our terrace. It was a nice change of pace to greet the morning with a fisherman rather than bumper-to-bumper traffic! A got some great photos…
More posts from the race soon!
