India Holiday: The Motorbike Lesson
Huw, Jess and Keith left for Hampi today at 0800. We arranged to hire a motorbike yesterday which arrived today. I had to learn how to ride it in about 5 minutes from a kid with not a huge grasp of english. I never worked out how to get it into neutral so always had to start it with the clutch in. You could buy petrol in litre plastic bottles from most wee hut shops around the area.
We went to the Shore Bar in Anjuna by chasing Ian's motorbike taxi. We arrived just after sunset which was quite spectacular. I gave Ian a lift back. Ian and Dave went back later on and Ian came back while Dave went on to Paradiso.
