spent the day on anjuna beach today , outside the main ccb strip goa is starting to look like a ghost town at times as it is right near the end of the season for international tourists and charter flights . so places like ashvem mandrem arambol anjuna vagator etc all have hardly any people . its kind of good you have beaches and restaurants to yourself sometimes so it has its perks . plus the sea is red hot like bathwater . its a nice contrast to dec/jan times when places are rammed . shore bar was our chosen hang out today . places seem really appreciative of your custom too .
stayed for another fine goan sunset , albeit a bit hazy
on the way back we caught a disgusting smell outside spazio resort anjuna . then we realised it was the family of about 15 goats who troop into anjuna from vagator each night . stink isnt the word , but they where so friendly , so we got them some cat biscuits out the bike . they where climbing all over the bike as goats do hahah .
then for our evening meal we jumped the bike for a 30 minute trip down to sinquerim . route would be anjuna > baga > calangute > candolim > sinquerim .
we ate at our favourite asian restaurant in goa , the asian fusion ‘wok n roll’ . always outstanding . this was how our bill broke down
