... Panaji for one night, but we would like to return. Fortunately we've been lucky with the weather so have both caught the sun. Today, before our train to Mumbai, we're going to look around the now deserted 'Rome of the East', Old Goa (Karmali) which, before a cholera outbreak 250 years ago had a population higher than London and Lisbon and contains amongst it's ruins Asia's largest church. It should be ...
