... furniture and her small staff and network of friends couldn't be more helpful and gracious. After our early morning arrival and most welcomed shower she offered to take us on her morning walkabout to orient us to the area. A very pleasant walk to the "Old India" beach area and then on to the newer "tourist" or "clifftop" area filled with guesthouses, hotels, restaurants and shops. Both very interesting areas. Debra introduced us to several shopkeepers ...
