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 .
the lucky buddha shack had closed who did excellent strawberry daq’s so hung out at the Buddha village instead, dirt cheap 50 beer was nice . had food drinks and watched the sunset . bliss
this evening went to one of our favourites ciao bella in chapora . had some bruschetta and a couple of pastas – 1 veggie and 1 amatriciana off the specials … outstanding as usual .
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 .
