Seasons Greetings from Kerala

We spent Christmas morning with friends on a rice boat in the backwaters of this beautiful south Indian state. It felt like paradise on earth.

But, like almost everywhere, Kerala is facing environmental challenges and conflicts between natural resources and local livelihoods. I will write more soon on what we learnt, and would like to take this moment to send slightly belated but very warm and sunny Christmas greetings to everyone who stops by this blog.
