Our honeymoon in India

Summer 1997: for our honeymoon, Kate and I went to Kerala in southern India. It was extremely hot, and mostly lazy. We stayed in an expensive hotel (for the first time ever) and did a little exploring in the local area. But we saw only a tiny fraction of Kerala.

Just north-east of the capital of Kerala, Thiruvananthapuram, there are extensive waterways edging the coast. You can get a guided tour on a huge wicker-topped boat.

Kate and I on the boat. Because she lost her camera soon after we got back, this is the only picture we have of the two of us together.

Us on the mountains. Boy was it hot.

Did I mention how hot it was? We could only sit out by the pool in the late afternoon.
