... local rice (not de-husked as much as that we see in Australia) along with konkan water (made from a local fruit and mineral water, lime additions.......... beautiful). This becomes a drink we seek from here on. Konkan water is somewhat a staple in Goa.
The house's owner (Ruben Vasco da Gama .... yes proudly a direct descendant of Vasco), gave us a guided tour and explained the restoration process he and his family had undertaken. He had obviously completed a ...
