We danced on the beach and in the ocean then called it an early night. Sunday morning we were booking it out of Anjuna and heading to the Spice Plantation before our bus in the evening.

... was a lot further than expected. We hopped on the nearest bus and from there went to Ponda. Once in Ponda, a Black and Yellow rickshaw took us to the Spice Plantation which was located through these huge, forest hills.
