This is the equivalent of a city bus in the Keralan Backwaters. These boats are loaded with people and cruise from pier to pier, picking up and dropping off local passengers. The houseboats give them a wide berth as they tool about much more quickly. However, because they make frequent stops, we were in a leapfrog match up with them in which we would pass them at the dock and then they’d pass us in motion, and so on.
