Xmas day was here , great atmosphere and we handed out loads of little presents that we had wrapped and brought from uk to kids on the beach and at the market . never seen such big smiles .
anjuna market and beach for the day was a superb atmosphere today . so hot as usual in the wednesday day market
on the way for end of day drinks we passed “janet & johns” , some indian dudes where really partying ! awesome stuff guys !!!
party hard in your underpants
grabbed a beer in shore bar , an english dj was spinning some deep house .
this guy in his turban was rocking the crowd !
seeing a concert tonite , so we looked for some quick food on the way to the gig , jumped in “oppas” on way in chapora to try somewhere new , its tucked at the end of the bar main street . got beef fried rice 200 , veggie dhal 100 , get lots of food . just average tho . quirky old skool place , quite travellery in feel , all russian clientele with an on site library , info and first aid !!! a one stop shop haha
so the highlight today is “prem joshua” live at “teso” in siolim .
i think it was 750rps in each . they did a long set and by the end everyone was dancing . it was the first time id seen them and was impressed . they where a 4 piece band with bass , drums , keyboard players , and the main man prem doing vocals/flute/sitar etc . turned out he was really wanting to play there as ‘for the last 30 years he had been watching the sunset at that very point on the chapora river before teso was even there’ .
for at least an hour this frog joined us , think he must have been a PJ fan frog , he barely moved off this glass for an hour till the waiter took him . the waiter didnt realise the glass had a frog on it , when we showed him it was the waiter who seemed to jump . he went to set him free at the side .
at the end of the gig we went back along the riverside to chapora . we got shots and fresh juices from 2 places and made cocktails at the temple . again . then down to anjuna beach shore bar till the early hours as usual excellent electronic music and awesome cocktails , wicked day and night . this guy makes the best cocktails in anjuna , puts on a real show for you at the bar making them , a real perfectionist not the usual crap in a glass . try a mai tai .
heres some prem joshua moments , the last one sums it up well if you want to check one .
