Lake Chilika- The Journey Continued

There are many islands on the Lake Chilika and the boat ride takes you near many of them. The first island we came across had a young lad who waded across to us and boarded our boat with a tub filled with shells (refer previous post third snap). The chap told us with confidence, acquired through foxing many a gullible visitors, that the shells contained precious stones and that he was offering them at dirt cheap prices as they were abundant there. Some, alas in our group, were hoodwinked into buying the “precious stones”, which later was found out to be fakes. Anyway, the boat trip on the serene lake was magnificent to say the least.
