For our Diwali holidays our family went on a trip for 6 days and 5 nights. We first went to Hampi. Second we went to Badami. Third we went to the beach. Yahoo!!! Beach!!!
At Hampi a guy was joking to steal me and pulling a little bit on me. In Hampi for the first time ever I saw langur monkeys. Langur monkeys were gold with black face and gold tail with a black tip. I feel it was so cool to see a langur monkey for the first time ever. Also in Hampi we went to lots of temples and one of the temples me and Kalani had camera sniping games. How you play camera sniping is you take as many pictures of the other person as you can without them taking more than you or the exact same amount as you if you want to win.
So, Badami now. at badami we went to cave temples. The pictures with the random kid and the temples that look like they're made out of caves is from the cave temples. In the temples there were a couple cave paintings. There were parrots living above the last cave temple in the row. And there we saw lots and lots and lots and lots of bonnet macaques. At Badami, still at the cave temples, I saved a butterfly from drowning in sacred water that had too much algae. My dad washed his feet in the sacred water. Farther away from where I saved the butterfly there was a evolution sculpture garden with trees. It had elephants, not all the way evolved humans, humans (normal humans, I mean), Neanderthals, tigers, dead humans. It was down the hillside.
The beach!!! Yay!!!!
We got two nights at the beach and it was really warm water because it was the Arabian Sea. It was very calm and there were lots of birds. We saw a sea eagle nest. We tried to get a picture of the nest but it was too far away. At the beach we went to a shop that had very good chocolate pancakes and French toast. It has been a long, long time since I've had French toast OR chocolate pancakes. They were very delicious.
I collected shells on the beach and made necklaces. I gave one to Meena, one to Kavitha; after that I made one for me but I don't wear it a lot.
I was very, very sad when I had to come back to stupid Bangalore.
It is Diwali holiday. We got 9 days off school! We went to Hampi. A guy put a firecracker in a coconut on the sidewalk. A hippie got hit by the coconut. It was funny.
The scariest thing that happened to me was a guy tried to steal me. I held on as tight as I could. My mom and dad made sure he did not.
The best thing was going to the beach. I went swimming 2 times. I also gathered shells. It is rare to see the ocean. I miss the ocean in Bangalore.
