I visited the Andaman Islands in December 2011. I stayed at Hotel Megapode Nest in Port Blair, a short walk from the Cellular Jail National Memorial, a former British prison. I also took a boat to nearby Ross Island to visit the ruins of the former administrative headquarters for the British in the Andaman Islands.
