So, I'm Trying To Get To Sri Lanka

usually when i travel, i have no itinerary, just an end destination. on my trip last year that destination was sri lanka. i'm in goa, and i just heard news that the governments of india, and sri lanka have agreed to open their waterway, i was very pleased to hear this because i hate flying. the route was to be tutucorin to columbo. on arrival in tutucorin, i found my way to the shipping company that were to take care of ferry service. they told me that permission was not yet granted, it could be tomorrow, it could be next year. if you have any updated information on this, please let me know.
so, i didn't want to fly to sri lanka, but even if i did, all the flights were booked for the next few months. the least i could do was to go to adam's bridge, and i'd be 17km to sri lanka, so i did.

From Rameswaram to Adam's Bridge

I can't remember the distance, i hired a bycycle, left early in the morning, and was back before 17:00 if my memory serves me right. Once i left town, it was a straight road, pacing through some shady palm paths, and fishing villages. the road ended. i pushed my bike, adam's bridge seemed just aroud the corner, but that was many corners. someone in a truck much like the one in this photo offered me a ride, so i hoped on.

So the rest of the way to adam's bridge was about 4km. this is an important spot for hindu's, now here's what i remember, i would like it if there are any hindu vters out there to please elaborate.
now the bridge (which is a sand bar with a series of mini sandy islands) was built to transport Rama, hero of ramayana to sri lanka to rescue his wife from the demon king ravanna.
now why didn't i just do that you ask, well Rama didn't have the indian navy that i saw on the horizon to deal with.
