My dad with the complimentary breakfast at Havelock Island. Author’s photo.

With our tour package for the Andaman Islands, we got a complimentary breakfast on each day.

These breakfasts varied. Some days, we’d get a ridiculous bread-butter-jam sandwich that I’d not seen since my childhood.

I finished it all, ridiculous or not. Bread, butter and jam, what’s not to like?

The idea was that on the days we were to board ferries to transport us between islands, we’d get the weird breakfast of a sweet sandwich.

Seats on a ferry. Large windows display the sea outside. Passengers look at television screens in front of them. There is a glass display case in front of them with samosas (deep-fried triangular savory pastries filled with potatoes) in front of them.

To prevent seasickness!

We’d board the ferry, reach, and then, if we had a good appetite, we would tuck into a good lunch, like this one.

Lentils, veg curry and butter chicken, with whole-wheat flatbread. Lunch at the islands. Author’s photo.

Some other days, we would get a full breakfast, for roaming around an island and a beach or two all day.

This was the deep-fried-wheat-flatbread with whole yellow peas and bread you see my dad smiling in front of.
