|Delectable seafood that we gorged on. And my pina colada.|
Caught the first view of the island before landing in Port Blair. It was a pleasant flight from Kolkata that lasted for a little more than two hours.
The hotel we stayed in was comfortable but the food in the restaurant wasn't anything to write home about. I only liked the seafood biryani that was generous in its use of prawns and pieces of fish. But breakfast was good with the usual fare of toasted bread with accompaniments, vada, idli, and sambar. We had no complaints.

These blooms must be related to the morning glory I think but the leaves look so different.
I was delighted to see this in Havelock. Apparently the store which is also an internet cafe does very well during the tourist season. That's from December to March. Loved the coffee/chocolate gelato that I had here.
Soon it was time to return by ferry to Port Blair. I thought I would get better shots of the island from above on our return flight to Kolkata. But it had rained in the morning and it was cloudy so no luck. I'll soon get back to my recipes...you know how it is to get back home after a holiday.:)
