Day Six: today we played hooky. The movement from place to place, the changes in time and the lack of sleep finally overtook us. We slept in until 8 and felt reborn.

Our next town was Daman; a resort town on the Arabian Sea. This part of the trip felt more surreal than any other to me. We were somewhat isolated and nothing had really been planned for us to do. We could rest, walk on the beach or stay in our rooms during the 2 days we … More Down by the Sea
