got a really decent bike 250r P/D incl Xmas NY period which was happy with . did Lunch and sunbathing at hippies anjuna . they have a new kind of semi indoor pod / club now on the top floor , as do others like UV bar (getting round those 10pm outdoor noise regs I guess) . the front was different , but the menus where definitely last years still . there additional outside space has been cleared looks like they have been stopped from having there weekly parties outside now , hence the small club upstairs .

Lots of new places in anjuna/vagator this year … a Spanish place ‘la tomatina’ , ‘sizzling goa’ on main rd, a tapas place nr oxford called “dali” , lots of new stalls north beach end , “chronicle” in vagator which bills itself as high end Italian rest plus club , “waves” in vagator which is a high end lounge bar , and “xtreme sports bar” between “Janet + johns” and “lilleput” un by the “shore bar” team . a lot happens in a year .

tonite did Guru anjuna for food and a live band , feat an impromptu guest spot from the ‘white rapper’ . the live band , a snoozy guy called “cliff from mapus” , who told us his 700 y/o house was being painted lol, then he he got ‘the white rapper’ on stage to show us a few cliches. yehh word homie …. comical . but at least it livened cliff up a bit .

Its the “IBW” site from last year . instead did ‘9bar’ which had easily over 100 in , but after 11pm the action is all inside these days, 100r beer , 100r honeybee , 300r jagermeister . wanted 200r admission but but explained scousers get in free so they let us in lol .
