    ... to clamber up and down some decaying cliff top steps. And we enjoyed some more bodyboarding and sun soaking. The beaches here are lovely and more coved, meaning the water was more clear without the sand being chucked up as much as in the other places. With a beautiful lighthouse at the end of the beach it made for picture postcard type material.

    The food here was expensive, though we managed to save a small fortune by getting beer from the ...

    ... that we had hoped for partly because we stayed next to our host family rather than with them. This also meant they were not always on top of the housekeeping of such a large place; although full of character it wasn’t very clean plus poor Alia got bedbug bites from the mattress she slept on.

    ... lemon soda (hold the sugar and with extra lemon). After a few of these we begrudgingly left and said our goodbyes to our guesthouse's waiter Amit. He's a funny little guy doing his second season from Nepal. His English wasn't great and that was part of his charm. He was desperate to learn some English sayings and had a little book of them where he got everyone to write new ones in. We also had to write them on his arm so he'd remember them and help him to use them in the right ...
