    ... they were playing local music, so food for thought. The next day began very similarly, with breakfast a poke around the shops, except for this time we actually made it to the beach! We even made it to the nearby temple too, which was just lovely as we were the only tourists there, and there was a little girl's Hindu communion type thing (HUGE knowledge gap) going on. We also snuck through a door, peeped over a wall and found the temple elephant chained up in a ...
