Jan 22, 2009 - Badami via Ilkal

Intending to bicycle to some of the sights, I am tired from staying up late watching a movie so instead of getting going early (8 am) I don't even stir until 8.

cari amici di tastiera, altre due cose su Gokarna, le prima riguarda la famosa spiaggia che dulcis in fundo siamo andati a vedere, il mare non e' cristallino anche perche' il fondo e' molto sabbioso e scuro e non c'e' barriera corallina, la sabbia al tramonto si tinge di giallo oro, ma la cosa piu' bella oltre alla fauna di frikkettoni ed ex hippi sono le mucche sul bagnasciuga e i cammelli guardoni e assonnati, abbiamo anche preso una barchetta per fare un breve percorso e fortuna delle fortune abbiamo visto dei delfini. Gokarna village e'...
