So we arrived here in Goa, the supposed stomping ( or should that be smoking ) ground of the hippies in India and what did we find....not one, not even a small one, apparently they have fled the area in search of quieter areas in which to worry about the planet, hug trees and smoke weed !!! The search continues !!!
No but seriously , Palolem is a bit of a surprise really, neither of us knew what to expect from Goa, but you hear all these stories of huge beaches crowded with fat Germans, hippies and package holiday tourists, all I can say is that I know it's early in the season, but they aren't here. The beaches are however and they are huge and beautiful. The edge of the beach is packed with small villages of Coco huts, masses of them which are erected (fna, fna ) and dismantled every year, really pretty basic but smack bang on the edge of the beach.
We've had an absolute beaut of a time here, the sea is so warm it's unreal, just like a bath. Good job really as I haven't had a wash for a few days HA HA,
Yesterday we went out dolphin spotting first thing in the morning, it was so cool, they were everywhere at one point, no matter where you looked one was there, they were so graceful and the scenery was so beautiful, what a start to the day, sorry no photos but you'll be pleased to know Chris it's on film, oh what fun we're going to have, the hours will fly past just wait and see!!!! I'm Spartacus!!!!
Ria's transformation into a windy continues - today her hand has been traditionally hennaed and her toes bejewelled, so with the Sharmie thingie, the jewellery and the dark tan the metamorphosis is almost complete!!!! On the subject of toes another significant event occured last night, the nail on my little piggy who didn't have roast beef on my left trotter , came off ( with a little persuation from Ria!!) It had been injured in Varkala and finally came off, and you'll be pleased to know this too is on film Chris!!!! So the little piggy count now stands at 4 on each foot as the one I bashed up in Madurai still hasn't recovered ( ( the one that went to market) and Ria is down to 9 as she bust up her left one that went wee wee weee all the way home recently, so all told not a good time for the trotters!!!
So five days have drawn to a close and we're off again, not far though only 12 k down the raod to a little secluded beach called Agonda.
