The small town rickshaws were a source of great fascination for me. I’ve always found it interesting to observe the different colour combinations on rickshaws across the country. These ones in particular were referred to as kaali-purples by the end of the trip.

The first beach we explored. Isolated, as most of the beaches we went to were.

The next day – consisting of a fort, a lighthouse, cow-ded roads (sad puns aren’t eliminated from this blog), and the sunset over a beach followed by some long exposure sea shots.
