    Well @The Waterboy - Marco you are comming home soon next week to the grind and i am off to India. :tt2:

    You made me so jellous with all your pics. WOW. Now it is my turn.:)

    Anyways i am so excited, on the 26th we fly to Bombay then to Cochin. From their we go to the Agatti islands, dive a little on the islands and then fly back to Cochin (Kochin) and then on to Delhi. We do the touring thing and then fly on to port Blair, and do some diving on the islands with Rajah the elephant. A first for me.:)

    Might not be able to post pic's from Agatti or the other islands as connectivity is 0, so i am told. Will update when i can.

    Suhayl you will enjoy. It is an experience you will never forget. I went with all sorts of expectations which were way off. Some disappointing in a way and others very exciting. There is so much to do and see, unfortunately we did not get a chance to attend any of the IPL cricket matches which are the passion of most of the locals on the main land and the, Lakshadweep islands and Andaman islands. We did however take time out to visit the Taj Mahal. WOW !!! you must go to Agra and spend at least 3 days touring the area.

    No No No... I also thought so and wanted to give the visit a skip. The Taj and Agra fort was absolutely brill and gave me a big change in heart. I will post a few pic's i took later.

    If you want to do something special try and get to Port Blair. It is Monsoon time when you are going, but was the highlight of my trip. Look up Port Blair, Havelock and Barron islands. This is simply stunning.
