We left towards late afternoon and had an eventful journey along the way. First up, a frisky long tailed macaque made a marathon dash across the 8-lane motorway and met its fate under the wheels of a small 1-ton lorry ahead but to the left of us. Nearing our destination, on a 2-lane quiet country road, we passed a recently occurred road accident whereby a motorcyclist lay fatally injured and a group of people awaiting police and ambulance services. Witnessing two morbid scenes during the short journey shook us a little - a stark reminder of mortality...
The genial hosts served aromatic cinnamon tea - the Punjabi 'chai' tea with local cakes and snacks. Before long, we headed for Baywatch, a seafood restaurant located on prime seaside with clear views of evening skies presided over the horizon, high tides, the sound of the waves lapping against the sea wall and fanned by a gentle breeze.

It was a beautiful evening and we were amongst great company. So, it was with satisfied and heavy tummies, everyone headed off on the long journey home to watch the much anticipated World Cup clash of the giants
- Germany vs England.
