Goa as a desert

GOA 3 letters devilishly evocative, saleswoman fantasies and which refer to the idea of a paradisebabas cool, illicit substances and orgiastic celebrations. But also hippies perched soixantenaires, a little back and frozen in their ideals and utopias peace and love”.
In early May, I arrived at a time when A was more myth than reality. . Sorry to disillusion you from the outset.

No, island-touch, will play cushy, local.
Already because of the revelers were all gone

You come more nightlife ?
And two: the beach dresses a lot of waste. Not very jojo stuff. And paradise, I would imagine not dirty. Backyards restaurants are landfills where waste is abandoned in a garbage heap without being placed in trash bags. They must surely reach the size of a mountain before burning them as I have seen in Mumbai.
Three: I’ve never sweated so much in my entire tropical living. And no desire …
I spent my time to sprinkle water my shirt, my shorts, my dress. This vital behavior had upset some Indian because a little rascal grabbed my swimsuit bottom that I let dry on a wire with pliers to my cabin. It was my favorite bottom of the swimsuit. I kept up even today just to never forget that once in my life, I had a swimsuit bottom that made me look at the Hall Berry coming out of the waters in James Bond … (sweet thought …)

But I loved the colorful houses, the architectural legacy of the colonial Portuguese. And my purchasing power. It’s incredibly cheap and you can bargain for lower prices.
Radical example: three weeks in India, airfare included (400 euros), luxury hotel, expensive restaurants and cheap too, transport, gifts, accommodation, excursions, bike rental, train, etc. In short, the all-inclusive travel: 1380 euros. Who says better ?
I want a week in Europe without returning with a ton of gifts and spices …

For beautiful beaches, Goa is not the best destination. But when dying of hot like me in India, Goa becomes a kind of paradise …

 

 

♦ Informations ♦

To go to the region of Goa (State of the southwest coast of India, divided into two districts: North Goa and South Goa, located on the Arabian Sea and extends over 3702 km, with 101 km coastline), take the train to Mumbai to Pernem. I do not remember the price but it’s really cheap to 10am train
Goa is the first Portuguese colonial presence in India.
