      ... where people had gone for the day and I missed out of the yoga class, the day boat ride including feeding pidgeons and then walking along the ghats. I am hoping I am feeling well enough to at least walk down the ghats tomorrow before we leave.  I went down with Fiona to meet the group as there was a transportation update.
