15th May '09

hellow mates....this is Freelancer...with his daily dose of crap. okay the day started at 7a.m when dad literally threw me off the bed and my sis screaming 'its getting late'. that was my first memory of the day. Everyone got dressed up and ready by 8....i was the last one to wake up. Ok the itinery said something about island trip thingy and boy, i was excited. Dad asked me to pack my swimming shorts and i was grinning like a fool when he said that...Finally!!! Snorkelling, here i come!

By 9.30 we each had tickets and reached the jetty where there was a huge and fierce and beautiful and white-ish ship. And as you guessed we didn't board that one!!! Nay our vessel was a dingy, old, creaking double decker ferry...err...a...float actually...But we had a captain that would have put Jack Sparrow to shame with his speeches.... Thus our voyage began into the unknown with the skies threatening to open up once again...i was more worried about ending up at the bottom of the ocean before we reached. The first island we reached is known as ROSS island (not ROSE...gulabo...hehe). okay this was the capital of Andaman before Port Blair...most of the buildings that included the Church, the barracks of the EIC as well as the Japanese when they captured this island in WWII....are destroyed by the tsunami...now no one lives there except a feew deers and antelops....and boy o boy...weren't they preety!!!! the beach there is A.W.E.S.O.M.E (it is pronounced awesome...:P)....blueish greenish water! As we had just about 1 hour in that island...we hurriedly returned back to our boat...err...ship...or whateva!

the 2nd stop was Viper Island....its under the tourism department now...there used to b two jails for men and women who fought against the British before the cellular jail was built.....the place is a gem of an island....but badly ravaged by the tsunami. I was really really hoping for cannibal hunting.....but couldn't find a single clue that they lived or existed....*sigh*

the last and final stop....NORTH BAY Island. Now this is what i was waiting for....as soon as we reached the shore i changed into my swimming shorts and jumped into the ice cold water....bliss...i was neck deep in the water but still coud see my feet clearly....my sis was practically drunk in euphoria....mom braved herself to let the water atleast wallop past her knees...lol. There's a bit of bad news though...no snorkelling!!!! they saw some crocks early in the morning...and it was not safe to give a visit to the corals at that time....its okay...not a big deal for me...coz i still have two days at HAVELOCK.....woohooo... Finally at around 4p.m when everybody got tired...Jack Sparrow decided to take us back.....i slept all the way.....reached at about 6p.m....no more programs for the night. I finished reading Twilight...yet again....Ordered chicken biryani for dinner and man...they disappointed me....Biryani of Chennai is much better....still anyways..end of another day....

signing off now....
