We woke and jumped straight in to the sea to clear the cobwebs, splashing about in the waves at 8am before anyone else arrived on the beach was great. We had the usual morning argument about sun cream. Erica enjoys the argument I think which is why she refuses to put any on making me lose the plot each morning. Guessed that Erica was adopting the Chris Stephenson rule of tanning - suncream? pah!  It's just a con to get you to spend money, just burn it in! (Seriously that was what he thought).  Anyway after a shower we got delivery of the trips first moped we agreed a price with the driver the day before of about 2 pounds a day, no questions, no liability forms or hire agreements etc.

We found some beach shack stalls nearby and now we have bought Lady E her new leather shoes (which are nice and she is delighted with they cost almost 2 pounds by the time the negotiations ended, her others were falling off her feet) she needs something to wear on the beach. She agreed to wear the cheapest we could find. We settled on a second hand pair of Kobe Bryant flip flops but we could not get below 1.50 pounds so had to leave those behind. For anyone that doesnt know Kobe Bryant is a basketball player so they looked a little odd on Eggsy. We eventually settled on some second hand love hearted ones which we could get cheaper. We then drove across to Anjuna beach to explore get used to driving bikes again and to find some reasonable suncream (even with the factor 30 Erica was burning).

For brunch we had a bottle of coke and a bag of crisps between us from an airconditioned supermarket where we could have spent about an hour, just because it was airconditioned. The sun seems much more powerful here and the weather is so much more humid I'm sweatin buckets.

When we got back to the huts we had been seen at Anjuna (I am amazed by how small and quiet some of these 'legendary' places are). Anjuna is not much more than a few shops and beach stalls, a few bars and restaraunts. I'm not sure how a hippy movement got started here. It is still all lovely though. We got back to the beach had another swim then decided it was far too warm. We got back and sat chatting to Alex while he watched me drink about 3 litres of water.

Went back almost Veggie for Tea as we have agreed to eat a chicken curry that Alex will cook us tomorrow night (for free) and Eggsy still aint feeling the best. I say almost veggie because there was a spider in the bowl with the Garlic Nan (Our first nan bread in India). Erica's Cheese Butter Masala was good thought!.

Got back and drank a few beers on the Veranda, sweating like you have never seen sweat before.

I have no idea how the football ended last night nor do I want to know - Dil (but it was in the newspaper and on the internet).

Dude, Anjuna is HUGE. You probably made it up to Anjuna north beach only. On wednesday, go to the flea market. From there start exploring the beach in both directions for miles and miles and after you will take those comments back.
