Rachel, Trevor, Helena Basti and gathered with a fridge full of alcohol and some snacks. The floats were all late and there were only about 6 of them. There were more scooters and bikes than anything else. Not much to look at but we had a great time on the balcony.
... for not so great prices) and decided on pasta, surprise surprise – Indian food is taking a back seat for the time being!
The attempt to get a taxi back to Anjuna was interesting, no one really wanted to put 6 of us in a car, so after 5 attempts we managed to all squeeze into a 5 seater... the driver, Jon in the front (pulled the short straw on the way there), Kiah in the back, me on Laura’s lap, Tash on Danny’s lap. An interesting journey with ...
