A walk around in Goa in Monsoons- Bliss.
Goan weather is such that one feels like on a perpetual vacation. Now look at Fort Aguada above. Does it appear as if this picture was taken only a few hours back? Well it was. And that’s how it looked. Even better maybe. Rain is hardly a dampener for those who wish to enjoy Goa. Before I start to sound like the tourism department, Let me tell you the background of my visit. After many months, Angel’s school declared an impromptu holiday today. Naturally, the two of us, took advantage of the sun ( in the morning) and took this walk from our hill , down into the city. (actually Panjim is no more bigger than say Rk Puram in Delhi, Adyar in Chennai and Parel in Mumbai, though I still feel that those are much bigger). A very nice elderly gentleman stopped to offer us a ride downhill, which we refused, simply to enjoy the walk down. While I was awed as usual with the architecture, Angel found the creepy crawlies, the sprouting leaves and the climbers interesting. After the walk, we were famished and a sweet quaint bakery in the market was the next stop.
Evening came. And so did rain. With limited options and umbrellas, we drove down to a nearby fort. As usual the journey was inspiring. But how many pictures can I upload! We explored the internal road from Porvorim to the Fort. Betim creek and a fishing point looked more picturesque than ever before. Bebinca, a local Goan sweet, helped me end the day.
