So I dawdled until noon, checking e-mails, making sure Rocinante was in good working order, stocking up on water and cigarettes, and generally putting off the inevitable. Had my usual breakfast and gave out e-mail addresses to the people I had been spending time with there at Palolem. Goa is not the real India, they all tell me, and I believe.
Choosing to leave on a sunday had it's practical application as well, there would be less traffic, and probably the gates at the Karnatakan border would be shut as well.
Finally, bidding a fond adieu to another beautiful place that had won my heart, I fired up my trusty steed and headed off into the unknown darkness of "real" India.
