Hot water was hit or miss, the place is flirting with being a little rundown and it got a little loud at times during the night (but that's Calangute). Otherwise I was pleased. The management is nice and helpful.

... A boy about 10 years old was my salesman. His father had stepped out for a while so it was his opportunity to make a big sale. His brother about two years old, sleeping on the floor where the mirror was. He just rolled him over and out of the way.

That same evening we sat on the roof top of our hotel to what I can only describe as one of the most special events I have ever seen over the city skyline. In line with the kite festival every evening sky lanterns are set off into the evening sky along with fireworks. We were on top of our hotel at dusk and witnessed what seemed like something out of the movie Avatar. We were 8 floors up, overlooking Ahmadabad in front ...
... on the beach. Amazing!
We are leaving Goa tomorrow to head to Mumbai by train, our first train journey in a while. We have a day to spend in Mumbai before heading to the airport for our flight to Bangkok. We have booked up a decent looking place which offered free airport pickups so that's a bonus. We've been researching exchange rates and things to do and are ready for country number 2. Will write again when we can. Love A & ...
