Here’s just another entry to keep my little travbuddy map straight.  Again, just for record’s sake.  After all, I need to acknowledge the time spent and several modes of transport taken to get from my haven on Havelock island to Hampi.

Here we go:
-  autorickshaw to port on Havelock
-  2 hours ferry ride to Port Blair where I spend the night
-  morning flight to Chennai, 2 hours
-  inner city train to my guesthouse where I spend one night in Chennai
-  autorickshaw to Central Train Station, followed by…
-  FRANTIC autorickshaw to Egmore Train Station after discovering that my train has been re-routed to a different station
-  7 hour train to Bangalore (less than half full as most people seemed to have missed the train)
-  10 hour train to Hospet
-  30 minute autorickshaw ride to Hampi ferry boat
-  ferry across the river where I walked to Shanti Guesthouse

It only took 3 days.  

Needless to say, I’m not moving from this place anytime soon.

Sounds worse than more drive to Montreal, 10 hours in a compact with my 6'5 cousin & 6'1 friend.
