Spent a well deserved day on Rushikonda Beach. The water temperature on this side of India (Bay of Bengal) is much cooler and thus refreshing than the west coast lukewarm waters. Lots of locals. Hung out with some fellow adventurists from the UK and Australia. Cork joined the boys in a game of cricket on the beach. .
Shared stories other teams. Of which we heard another team hit a sleeping cow; a bus clipped the windshield of a rickshaw making the team wear swim googles for a few days to see; another team tipped over at a tollbooth, and as expected lots and lots of breakdowns. We also heard a few teams dropped out.
