Sundarbans trekking

The Sundarbans are mostly a jigsaw of tiny channels and islands, densely covered with mangrove trees. Still, there are larger dry islands like Jamtoola with a vegetation more like a savannah, and proper sandy beaches. And virtually no shadow in 40-degree heat. I got a slight sunburn through my cap.

The beach used to be mangrove forest too, until a typhoon washed parts of it away. There are still half-buried shipwrecks. The sand is glittering with silver silicates, they make glass from it.

We were glad to be back on our boat and its cold lemonade and cold shower!
