Kerala on my mind
On a trip to India two years ago, I went on a trip to Kerala with my parents to see the places where they were born and grew up, and to share in their memories. I feel a connection to Kerala like to no other place, though I've never lived there. Maybe it's an ancestral thing!
We went on a backwater boat ride in Cochi, visited cousins and small, serene temples in Alapuzha and some relatives in Trivandrum as well. It was a lovely trip and I can totally see myself living there.
This picture of a water lily was taken on the backwater boat ride.
