... Once settled in the captain pushed us off and began casually paddling us along the shore of the backwaters. [Aside: It was here that Rob floated the theory that the French girl had tuberculosis based on her dry cough and discoloured nails.

In the early afternoon, during another power cut Marita and I went for a walk, to a local cafe, with a generator, and I had a not very Indian spinach and corn crepe!
