So we hung out in the pool for a bit, then played some volleyball, then laid in the hammocks (well everyone else laid in the hammocks and I fell out of it - twice - don't ask). We had dinner out on a patio at the restaurant in the resort. It was a nice meal - though paled in comparison to some of the other food we had. All in all it was a relaxing day that made up for the shuffle - shuffle from one place to the next.
But nothing could have prepared us for the next big transportation blow sent our way ...
The bus trip ended up being fun so I am somewhat glad we missed the train! The pit stop at a local lunch joint was stellar. Being that it was a local joint I expected what I've always seen in Andhra ... standard tiffins and water that I wouldn't dare drink. Well this place had tiffins - but with FISH! YUMMY FISH! And they had BEER! WHAT! I was absolutely floored. I ate the fish with such pleasure and sucked down a beer to make the remaining hours of the hellish bus ride more comfortable. It worked as I could barely feel the heat of the noon time sun reddening my skin and making it all sticky ... I was daydreaming as we sped through the turns and dodged traffic along the serene palm-lined roads. I am on VACATION!!!
