Havelock Island


Ryan and Noah go to Havelock Island


First they stayed in bungalows at Beach #5






Havelock Radha Nagar (Beach #7) was said by Time mag
to be the most beautiful beach in Asia.


There are elephants in the forest behind the beach


Noah releases his pet Little Andamanese hermit crab


Goodbye you little jerk


The lagoon at #7




A hut at beach #7 will set you back $2 a night.


The evening scene


Later, Noah and Ryan stayed on opposite
sides of the island, visiting each other by motorcycle


The commute was pleasant












The sun goes down on #7


Eeeeeee, sunset


So many Israelis, Revi and Elan


Hermit crabs on #7, 2am


Drunk Bengalis bury each other, Lia is an aggressive paparazza,
and for some reason that one guy is wearing Noah's bedsheet like a skirt


Ryan and Noah regret not taking their camera to the village #3 Mela (festival). Suffice to say they ate lots of weird sweets and won prizes including purple sunglasses, a lice comb, two tounge-scrapers (not pictured). They were also wowed by the village #3 dance troupe's interpretations of the latest Bollywood hits


Adorable


Not so much




Ryan goes back to Port Blair to try to find a way to more waves


Long bus ride, but no way to get to Cinque Island, where
there is supposed to be surf


Ryan makes a friend


Betel nut is a filthy habit


Maurice and Emerique draw a crowd with chess on the
boat from Havelock to Port Blair


Bad cow eats the merchandise, the grocer is helpless, Port Blair


Back to Chennai aboard the Nancowry


Bunk class, day 2, 5am. This baby punched Noah in the face


Early morning staring children


Michael sleeps through the long ride while Oren and friend
busy themselves with projects


Goodbye Chennai. Goodbye India.
