Sunil and his wife made us very welcome in their home - our last destination and situated a convenient 40 minutes from the airport - but no aeroplane noise at all.
A lovely situation on the banks of the river and a nice swimming pool which would have been improved with some comfy pool furniture to allow for afternoon snoozes and gentle reading on the poolside.
We ate well - real home cooking by Sunil's wife - and were kindly taken out for lunch with his lovely daughter and son-in-law to a local restaurant on the nearby beach to celebrate Sunil's birthday. Sunil took us for some wonderful bird watching at the local fishing farms and we enjoyed very much looking at Sunil's fabulous bird photography and listening to 38s on his old gramophone. A good and relaxing end to our trip.
