Its nearly the end of the season, and all the red brit tourist are heading home, the beach is becoming isolated and quiet, which is lovely for those who love there peace and quite (being moi) i do have to say whatever i said previously, this is a gorgeous beach, and has charm, i think if i was travelling within a group i wouldnt feel so out of place, i think it isnt the best place for a single lone traveler, not like Anjuna, but if i was in say a group it would make one hell of a difference. The Hawkers who must of seen my white skin like a mile away have turned into some of the nicest ppl i have met while in India, and tho i may not end up buying there gorgeous beads and sarongs, i do talk with them about life on the beaches, one girl , Natasta to all us English but really has a lovely Indian name which nobody can say, is only 15years old, and has been working the beach of Candolim since she was 9!! sent out by her parents from the east part of Goa, she hasnt seen her family for over 6months, and might i add, she isnt as pushy as the other sellers, in fact she is a really nice girl and if you ever come to the beach, make sure you buy something off her.
I do miss the people back home, i miss silly things like, my duvet and gorging on sweets for no reason, english crisps, and friends who just love to hang out and drink til the late hours, oh and i miss Man U glory supporters who claim to be dead good at DJing lol. These right now i miss, and wish they could share this day.
Tho saying that not everything is lovely here in India, Sadly the dude from the Ola Jeeps tours has become a personal stalker, and so far has been knocking on my door late at night asking me out for a drink, even tho i am totally with someone back home, its both off putting and freaking me out to the point that last night i double bolted my door, and place the writing desk against it, because not once but twice last night he came a knocking first at 9.
Well only two more days here and then end the Indian experience back north, and look forward to seeing Thailand.
