    ... We passed numerous lovely lakes ringed by coconut palms. We looked southward to the much calmer (than the Indian Ocean on the tip) turquoise Arabian Sea which was now on our left.

    ... do, thirty minutes after getting on the right bus,was rent a tuk tuk that would take us right to our guest house door. Wrong. What really happened was that the tuk tuk dropped us off at the opposite end of the beach, and on the bottom of the cliff. Our guest house was on the top of the cliff. So, after travelling some nineteen hours straight, on taxis, trains, two buses, and a tuk tuk, we discover that we get to end this journey with a quarter of a mile walk down ...
