No wfi again this morning. And when we checked out if we hadn't already done it before (in vietnam) the receptionist would have let us go off to the airport without our passports! I had to remind him to locate them for us. Got to goa airport 11.45 for 13.45 flight. You have to queue outside to have passports & travel docs checked before they let you in.

Anyway, the train was due into Madgoan station at 5.50am so we sychronised watches and set both alarms for 5.30 knowing that no washing or toileting would be involved and we'd be up and away like a shot.
