Cashpoints , new years eve ….. what a nitemare today wasted at least 3 hours trying to get more cash today . anjuna beach ran out when I was 1st in que after waiting for about 30 mins , anjuna near dominos was empty , chapora petrol station was just closing as we got there , chapora bank had cash [and the bank was open] … damn thing ran out when we where 2nd in que . went into the bank who said they cant give cash advances on cards . jollie julies in vagator do cash advances and their terminal machine broken and out of action ! unbelievable bad luck ! so we retraced our steps and it was the same everywhere still . there just wasn’t any cash . we stopped looking cos it was so hot at midday and went to our shack on ozran beach for a few hours feeling sorry for ourselves . couldn’t do without cash on NYE .
this is where we would see in the new year 2013, close to us in a place we knew would be decent with loud music till stupid am time . donut man was even working so grabbed some of those super fresh bad boys
and grabbed a few millers
and had a cool afternoon getting in the mood . there was a great buzz on the beach . went back to chapora bank early evening and thankfully there was cash now . another 20 minute que and we doubled up on 2 cards 20k to make sure we had enough for tonite . there was a sign outside chapora bank on the telegraph pole advertising royal enfield bike tour of goa which looked good and might interest someone .
got the party on track with too many cocktails ,
walked out of there about 10pm definitely well on the way to coma city . god knows how much the bill was we where in there a few hours and we sure paid for that table . its really cool thalassa [see prev blog posts] , authentic greek food and pretty much one of the top few restaurants we ate in from north to south goa . nice cool soundtrack over dinner too . they aren’t cheap the cocktails here , but they are really well made with proper brands , strong , and get you there ! remember booking in advance is essential as it sells out 500 heads each sitting 3 times a day
things got pretty messy after that . we ended up buddying up with a Russian guy who was on his own and we exchanged so many drinks n stuff . if you wanna party in goa its so easy to do 😉 communication wasn’t easy but you know when your messed up it all seems to make sense haha , if nothing else it seems to translate for sure. We had a right laugh ! he coudnt really speak our language in all honesty and neither could we speak his . about 11pm the music was blasting and they had the fashion / model show while the dj was on the ‘models [!]’ walked .
so the 3 fully then fell off the stand and big floor standing rockets where firing everywhere at all angles . the staff started running for cover , and when they did the people also ran for cover – madness ! then they came back out , chucked petrol over the 1 and set that off with similar outcome . it was a brilliant firework display even if a little risky . eventually the whole frame was ablaze and fell into the sea . all along the beach there where other fireworks too .
awesome night , a proper rave …. happy 2013 everyone !!!!
