Andaman Islands

We’ve been here for little over a week now and quite a lot has happened. The way of life here is nothing like on the continent. We only spent one night in Port Blair, the main islandin the Andamans, and took the early morning jetty to Havelock.

Havelock is a small island filled with beach resorts and restaurants for the ever growing mass of tourists. We found a beach resort called El Dorado, where we are paying 100Rs/ night for 2 people. Thats about 70 euro cents per night per person ;D We are living in the modest of facilities, and we have our hammocks hanging from the trees in our front yard.

We’ve met great people here in Havelock. Including Ari and his girlfriend, Ari from the USA and his girlfriend from Israel. Most of the foreigners here tend to be from Israel. And who could forget Eran, the man who is happy about everything! He could even find happiness in a cobra bite ! And ofcvourse a bunch of other people, everyone being extremely friendly.

A few days back we went snorkeling at beach no. 7. A long strand of beach on the west side the island. We didn’t see much and the better coral reefs are on elephant beach, so we need to make a trip there some day.

Last night Ari had organized a jam session at one of the more expensive places on the island. Ari has been travelling for two years and you can see it in his dreadlocks :D During his travels he has written a bunch of amazing songs with his guitar, and he played us the songs last night. The night was really fun! Musicians goint to play their own songs and people singing along. Even I went up and sang a song, after a few beers OBVIOUSLY ;)

Tomorrow is the Finnish independence day, and we still need to organize a venue for the event. We’ve promised everyone a massive party, and we can’t let them down! We all have a bit of a flu going on, so hopefully it’ll poass soon…

Cheers for now!

Yours Truly,

  1. Terve maailman matkaajat.

    Toivottavasti olette parantuneet flunssasta ettei haittaa menoa.
    Hauskaa näyttää olleen viimeisessäkin paikassa.
    Rentoa menoa ja laulukin on raikunut yötä, siitähän minäkin niin tykkään.
    Täällä on ollut tänään max. -15C, pohjoisessa on huidellut paikoin -30C.
    Talvi on vihdoin tullut ja lumi taitaa pysyä maassa etelässäkin jouluna.
    Onkin ollut valoisampaa mikä on piristänyt mielialaa kummasti.
    Viikon päästä lähdetään Helmin kanssa ensin mökille ja siitä sitten halkoniemeen muutamaksi päiväksi. Heli ja jani tulevat myöhemmin sitten lauantaina.
    Hyvää matkanjatkoa, hauskaa joulua ja uutta vuotta kaikille.
    Pitäkää toisistanne huolta.

    Terv. Jorma&Helmi

  2. We want more! BTW edellinen kommenttini on hävinnyt jonnekin avaruuteen…hauskaa saarielämän jatkoa ja joulun odotusta! Mahtaakohan joulupukki teitä siltä löytääkään:D
