The surf, sand and a whole lot of FUN!!! PART 3

Hope by now you have read Part II

Now, there’s one thing you need to know about Rhys-whenever he’s involved, our food bill usually tends to go through the roof. Now that we know that, you won’t be surprised if I told you that we went to Souza Lobo for dinner that same day and came back with a chocolate flavored Magic Moments bottle.

@29 December: Siddharth and me woke up early in the morning and decided to head to Calangute Beach since this was the day that Rohan, Vishal and Rhys would be arriving in Goa. We decided that we would sit on the recliners at the beach since there were still a couple of hours for their train to arrive. Unfortunately, it never struck us that their train might arrive early and soon we received a phone call from Rhys asking about our whereabouts. So finally after meeting with them and exchanging stories we headed out for lunch to a nearby restaurant called appetite followed by convincing Rhys’ uncle to lend us his bike so that we could have an additional one to handle!

Hanging out with Rhys

We really had a blast and Vishal even ended up getting tattooed-okay I admit, it wasn’t so much a tattoo rather than a rubber stamp which sucked.

All of us hanging out before Vishal got inked.. I mean stamped

@30th Waking up early in the morning we all decided to head to old Goa since there are some fantastic churches and places to visit there. As you can see from the pictures below we really had a blast and Vishal even ended up getting tattooed-okay I admit, it wasn’t so much a tattoo rather than a rubber stamp which sucked. While searching for lunch, Rhys reminded us that Panjim has a really good restaurant to eat at called down the way and so based on that advice, we travelled all the way from old Goa to Panjim and had four different types of biryani’s-prawn, mutton, chicken, pork. After we had a hearty lunch we decided to go and visit some locations nearby, one of which was Donna Paula. This is really a nice place to visit and it turns out we even got a little bit of history about it. This place got its name from two lovers who climbed to the top of the hill and committed suicide as their parents were opposed to their marriage.

After we had spent around an hour here, we initially planned to go back home, however you know me I’m all about the adventure SO I suggested that we travel all the way to Baga beach. To get from Panjim to Baga we had to cross the ferry and also pass through the sunburn crowd with all the girls wearing  short dresses and hot pants and sleeveless tops and sunglasses and huge hats. I’m surprised I never crashed bike (although I’m pretty sure my head was turning from left to right and never looking straight ahead at the road). After a sumptuous dinner at Brittos (and some nice hookah, on the beach) we returned home to crash on the bed.
