Packed a bag, caught a little ferry to Vipomd Is (about 10 minutes away) jumped on a rural bus that took us through villages and got deposited at a gorgeous sandy beach. people are not recreational swimmers here, so beaches are filled with fishing boats and other businesses – no access (and not really that clean) so this was really special. we swam and swam (in the Arabia sea/Indian Ocean) to our hearts delight, got burned, drank fruit juices, collected sea shells and had lunch. ahhhhhh
we told people (Indians) we had gone swimming and everyone was shocked – you went swimming!? – making swimming motions…….
