It’s about 8pm in Goa and after being swarmed on the beach by unidentifiable flying insects, I made my way back to the hut. I think I’m getting too old for a thatched beach hut, especially after seeing a mouse skitter across the floor. To top it off, my neighbours are Swedish and they sound like extremely drunk characters in a movie based on the Middle Ages.
This morning, I got moved immediately to the hut next door after asking management if it was common to have mice in the huts! 🙂
Currently, I’m sweltering under a shaded beach chair doing what I do best – people watching! Feels odd having to do nothing…I’m already used to it! 😀It’s not a nude beach, but what some of these women wear, it might as well be. And no, I’m not taking any pics for you guys!
Spoke with Padam, he runs the hotel restaurant on the beach. He’s from Nepal, and like most shopkeepers in Goa, he’s here from late October to end of April during the peak tourist season. He then returns home to work at another restaurant. From May to October, shops and hotels are completely closed because this part of India begins to scorch.
