A boy and a dog, Andaman Islands, India 2010

The Andaman Islands, an archipelago in the Bay of Bengal, consisting of about 300 islands, are known for their palm-lined, white-sand beaches, mangroves, tropical rainforests, coral reefs and marine life. Most inhabitants you meet are of Indian origin while indigenous people are the Negrito (pygmies in Southeast Asia), inhabiting the remote islands, many of which are off limits to visitors. Due to their strategic importance, the military presence is strong. In addition to an Indian visa, you need a special permit to visit the islands. We went there to attend a friend’s wedding.  It took us three days to get to Havelock Island from Johannesburg.
