watched the film ‘Anaconda’? on our visit to Kovallam, we decided to do a tour of the famed backwaters of Kerala. we went to the one that was supposedly nearest to Kovallam beach. it was a pretty sight for sure. as we set sail entering the thick outgrowths, the boatman proudly tells us that this is the place where Anaconda was filmed. was i impressed? well, lets put it this way, my immediate question was, are there snakes here?
