A Taste of Paradise...................hmmmm!

Calangute beach, Goa.
Its like bombay, with sand. All the beaches here seem to be the same, the bit the tourists stroll around on is all palm tree heaven. 50 yards back, all the way along its like this(probably cant see it to well in this pic, but it looks like a council tip). Left Goa the other day, cant remember what day, but whatever. Tried Bangalore for a few, way too manic, so have bailed out on the train to Mysore. Much more like it. Rather short of limbless people to exploit, sorry photograph, but then they were getting a bit like old buicks in havana. The novelty really does wear of quickly. That being said, i dont think im ready for macro lesser winged niblet shots yet, but who knows?
Not much else to say really, think i will stick around here for a few days, see the sights, eat the food, ride around in the little put-put things they have as taxis . All driven by blind people by the way. They really are quite safe, as long as you dont get in them.

saturday maybe.

I think its saturday. cant be quite sure though.

really should have bought the laptop. still just poodling around on the bike. booked an extra week at a hotel on the beach to get the room discount(a fiver a day..extortionate :) ) think i'll head up into the mountains after that and see some nature. time passes slowly here, not a lot to do. taking lots of pictures, mainly they suck, but the odd one seems okay. Now i just need a workstaion to edit on. I will not be holding my breath.

GOA. ............and not a hippie in sight.

I have to say, Goa is pretty deserted(tourist wise) at the moment, which makes me honcho no.1 for every hustler within a twenty mile radius. It's nice and quiet and i have a nice little royal enfield bullet parked out the front of my little hotel. Trouble is, this place is boring the shit out of me. There is just so litle to do, which would be nice if there was a beach to do it on, but with the monsoon raging thats kind of a no no. Im already missing the beggars and slums of bombay, guess im just a bit twisted that way, plus, there just isnt a picture here that i can find that doesnt make me cringe. gonna stick it out for a couple of weeks, read a lot of books, pootle around on the bike and eat a lot..........then head back to the slums.
Finally found an internet cafe that has a halfway decent pc(with dvd drive and photoshop no less) so am gonna spend a day editing pictures to post.
hasta la bye bye as they dont say in goanese.
