I scrubbed and I scrubbed, but the grime didn’t seem to leave my face. By now, I was red on top of the black! Then it dawned! It wasn’t grime on my face, it simply was my newly acquired skin shade. The fair skin gleamed from where it was protected by the floater strap against the dark brown of my exposed skin. What was I expecting? A vacation in Port Blair – all beaches and sea – no amount of sun block could have prevented this!
Hmmm, it is even enviable…A perfect conversation starter, that allows me to brag about my hectic holidays in the pristine environs of Andamans. Emerald seas, white silver sands, blues, orange, pink and yellow corals and I cannot even begin to count the colors of the marine life. This holiday, I have possibly seen all kinds of landscapes beginning with Mumbai, then Amritsar and Jaipur, to the hills of Munsiyari and finally the Andaman Islands. Now, I am trying to get back to work and people, catching up on pending tasks, downloading the countless pics we took. Over the next few days, I am going to fill in all those days of adventure gone by..
