WHAT I LIKED
Swimming in the sea. We rented big surfboards and I learnt how to surf standing up.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE
I did not like seeing beggars as I felt sad. We gave them money, but I know that is not enough.
WHAT I SAW
We saw elephants having a bath and wonderful old forts and temples. We went snorkelling and I saw an enormous leatherback turtle and a cuttlefish, which we thought was an octopus. Dad and I found a boat wreck; it was amazing how much it had sunk under the sand.
WHAT I ATE AND DRANK
On the beach I bought coconuts, and in the market we bought red bananas and mangoes, which were delicious.
WHAT I BOUGHT
We went to a turtle sanctuary (pictured), and I bought little turtles made of shells.
