Goan Strollin' To The Indian Ocean

On our second full day in Goa we wandered from Vivenda dos Palhacos down to the beach, a 20-minute walk.

We passed some beautiful houses along the way.



And some modest dwellings as well. It looks and feels very much like the Caribbean or Mexico. Of course, the Portuguese-style architecture and even some of the names contribute to that along with those palm trees.


And healthy signs of construction - note the bamboo scaffolding and supports.


We were struck by the irony of this sign.


And the oddly colorful trash providing gourmet fare for the peaceful porcines.


And finally, a glorious beach on a beautiful day. More about our time at the beach to follow...


As we wandered back we saw an even more intriguing sign. Had it advertised any quick cures for Delhi Belly we might have followed up.


We felt quite comfortable wandering along the roads here, the only place in India we did.


And finally back at the "House of Clowns", another good Trip Advisor find that proved to be a very pleasant place to stay.
