A Jail, Blue Waters and White Beach : Andamans

Ø 10 December, 2013
No option but to Fly to Kolkata. Overnight at the Airport.
Ø 11 December, 2013
Kolkata-Port Blair flight early in the morning. After freshening up, went to Cellular Jail. Afternoon Government Ferry to Havelock Islands. Nice place with resorts lined up right on the beach.
Ø 12 December, 2013
Morning Walk on the beach. Off to Elephant Beach in a Motor Boat. Back to Jetty and went to Radhanagar Beach, the one and only of its type in India, white sand, excellent place. After-noon Ferry to Port Blair.  
Ø 13 December, 2013
Took a three island tour in a big TRASH CAN (and they call it a tourist boat). Half day on the Ross Island alone or a visit to mud volcanoes would have been much better.
Ø 14 December, 2013
Local sight-seeing in Port Blair- Museums, Saw-Mill and Light & Sound Show in Cellular Jail.  
Ø 15 December, 2013
Flight to Kolkata. Victoria Memorial, again endless wait at the airport and back to Delhi.
