headed north today to one of our favourite beaches , arambol. as we went into arambol made a pit stop at arambol bakery , love this guy and his fresh baked goods ie 40R apple turnover , 10R veg pastry etc . its a tiny unsigned place easy to miss unless someone points it out . so here it is !

as in other resorts outside the main strip of c-c-b belt a lot of the shacks have started to close , its mid april and there are less and less tourists by the day . early closing elections are killing what fun remained . fridges freezers all being taken away , sunbeds and covers too . shacks being dismantled . its kinda nice tho not being as busy and your custom feels really valued at times . the beach was so quiet .

streets are dead all over north of CCB due to elections , and at night post 10pm goa becomes a ghost town , there is little evening entertainment to speak of , it isnt just drink that stops flowing as i imagined , everywhere actually closes full stop and you cant even drink in the day officially . lights out back to your room for drinks and music it is . or else you have to find blacked out places with people huddled around candles and drinking out of tea pots playing with the with cats . all hush hush nudge wink .

    Is that the dreaded Fusion in the last pic? Has it improved at all or do you still take your life in your hands when you eat there?
