Andamans, Day 1

This was the first day of the week long Andaman Islands trip. Flight time : The flight was at 3:45 AM. The only interesting thing during the flight was the view from the plane a little while before landing. All the individual islands could be seen separately, and even boats. When we descended, we could see the effects of the Tsunami still visible : in many places, the water had come inland and stayed there. The airport was very small. There were puddles near the runway.(some days before the trip, we received a call from the travel agent that there were going to be hurricanes and thunderstorms in the Andamans, and that if we went there, we might have been marooned there. We were about to cancel the trip). After landing, we made our way to Megapode Nest resort( megapode - bigfoot, the scientific name of an extinct bird found there). We caught up on sleep during the afternoon and then in evening, went to Corbyn's Cove beach and then to Cellular Jail. In the Cellular Jail, we saw only the light and sound show that day. It was about the history of the Cellular Jail.
