... get in our beach stuff and get on the beach. During this time we had noticed that one of the Goan ladies was cleaning a beach hut at the front that was near to the kitchen and the washroom for the bar, we had paid a deposit 6 months ago for a beach hut that had a top terrace and this wasn't one of them, so I checked with one of the guys that worked there Raj and he said it was ours.
