Goa is beautiful, but it’s SO hot here and very very humid. The type of humidity in which you need to have another shower as soon as you get out of the shower. I’ve had to have a plentiful supply of refreshing beverages to keep myself hydrated 🙂
I’ve spent the last couple of days in the capital city, Panjim, doing very little except eat fish and prawns and drink beer and shop. Goan food is delish! I’ll have to learn to make it at home as I can’t recall any Goan restaurants in Melbourne.
This morning I’m heading off to South Goa, where I’ll spend a few days at a beach called Palolem. It looks like a postcard picture place – swaying palms and long stretches of white sand. Bliss! I don’t know if I’ll have internet access there, so I may not be back online until next week in Mumbai. Looks like I’ll be adding photos when I get home as I just don’t seem to have enough net time to write AND upload pics. Don’t want to spend too much time on the net, either.
Before I came to Goa we went to Amritsar and visited the Golden Temple, which was beautiful. We waited an hour and a half in the queue to get inside, then only got a few minutes in the mosh pit inside – enough time to have a look around and get our bangles blessed. But it was well and truly worth it.
Sadly I’ll miss the footy on Sunday as I’ll be in transit, I was hoping to follow it online 😦 those of you who are Pies fans will have to barrack harder on my behalf – make sure you throw in a few chants of “STEEEEEEEEEEELE”! I don’t think Jack’s playing, but if he is, also do a few “Who’s got the ball chants” please 🙂 And could someone please text me the final score? My number is +91 9650 954 296
