sunburn 2013 was setting up the festival site . looks massive . i think it made the right decision to come here from candolim . awesome venue . traffic will be a nitemare on narrow lanes if the police dont have this boxed off . its right opposite the police station so there can be no excuse surely ?
its next to hilltop that has just put up its xmas and new year artwork outside the venue
and vagator football club that has had a nice makeover this year . still aint got no grass tho LOL
a guy was selling put your name on your bracelet for 100 . didnt see these guys last year . just avoid the yellow and orange ones lmao , id rather have a man utd tattoo . or maybe not .
spent the day at “shore bar” in anjuna , uber cool house music all day , so nice to avoid the trance . this could well be the cleanest shack on anjuna beach ? the kitchen is clean and full stainless steel . the toilets are black slate with spotless toilets . the toilets have paper , soap dispensers , mirrors . bravo guys , almost unprecedented here ! downstairs has Indian rosewood furniture and a funky bar . definitely cool . after the dirty Janet and johns kitchen we saw yesterday its a relief ! got served lovely clean lunch , well presented chicken burger and vege dal . some shacks didnt even have a proper toilet last year . small things hey lol
upstairs the shore bar has an all white second level too with all white furniture , wood floor and a glass wall partitioned club with decent sound system .
other nearby shacks also had stuff happening , cafe antonion’s had some boards out for hire , and played reggae all day this day , really good jamaican stuff not chart stuff . sound system was dreadfull tho , bass end cones had completely gone !
sun set over anjuna
mrs revisited one of her favs today – asnath vagator massage centre , 800rps for full body massage head to toe . still rates it as her favourite massage and not just in goa . the girls even left bruise marks on her arms , they really work hard at their jobs .
Indian again @ “sher – a – punjab” in vagator : “chicken rogan ghost” lol 200rps , veg biryani 130 , dam aloo 140 , aloo paratha potato bread (too salty , the only thing ive not liked here so far) 45 , kingfishers 50 which is cheap for round here .
back to “shore bar” cos we had such a cool day today and found out you get pretty much the best cocktails in anjuna here and bang for buck its unbeatable . its well better in this place than last year . this guy makes THE best cocktails in front of you , all the correct trimmings , measures and presentation lacing liquers down straws and over spoons properly . i think he makes one of the best mai tai ive had . he actually uses the correct ingredients and measures the way it should be done . 300rps cocktails and compared to other local places where drinks are not this quality [or youll be talking waters thalassa or chronicle in vagator and youll pay near double] . other beach bars just lash some random cheap spirit and carton based fruit punch into a glass and that isnt what this guy is making at all . perfect .
after that went for one in cafe lilleput with an english couple we had met . it was electro and breaks here tonight and was cool , better than some of the poppy stuff they play at night usually . after there it was further along the beach to curlies that was totally packed upstairs , good atmosphere , and also had a packed trance thing happening in the inside club . no charge to get in , but they charge on big party nights , like 1000rps .
and home past the cows that where on allnighters too .
