Happy Onam and a visual treat of God's own country- Kerala

Kerala, better known as "God's own country", is my native place. Onam is the biggest festival in Kerala, celebrated by one and all, with no religious barriers. It falls during the month of "Chingam" ( August - September ). Various festivities include intricate flower carptes ( pookkalam ), banquet lunch ( sadya) boat races etc. See our previous post about Onam here. As we celebrate Onam, I thought is fun to share some pictures with you all from our recent visit to Kerala.

Chocolate Crinkles

Hope you are all enjoying the last few days of summer. If I say I am super busy these days,it would be an understatement ! All the activities for kids,parties,some hiking etc is taking all my time, which makes me wish that we had more holidays during summer, something like a 2-3 days long weekend. Though the days are longer in summer,it's just not enough for my family ! I guess most of you will agree with me on this thought !
