Roxanne was able to spend the day with us and I loved having such quality time with her - like when we told everyone else just to go see the dolphin show without us.......once you have seen this, you do not need to see it again. Don't get me wrong, the dolphins are magnificent and the trainers are fantastic, but the show is a combination of Broadway and Disney. This really takes away from the enjoyment of seeing the dolphins. Once they came out, we could tell they agreed with us!
But the dolphin show is the only thing we could critique. Everything else is more than wonderful. My favourite part is watching the whale sharks be fed. Their mouths are as big as the boats on the surface where their food is distributed!
I asked Roxanne to list what we ate and here is her list:
At Amma's house, we had
Pulao (rice pilaf)
Palak Paneer (Spinach with cubed cheese)
Raitha (cucumber, cilantro, yogurt salad)
Butter Naan (bread)
Salad with sprouted mung breans, strawberries and almonds + raw cashew nut dressing
Although all the dishes were unusual to us, they were all fabulous and delicious. Alan, Martin, Whitney and I thoroughly enjoyed every dish and were especially grateful just for the simple pleasure of eating "real" food!
