So after a swift change of plan I decided to bail early from Baga beach and stay in Panjim with my mate Shelley. It's closer to the airport so makes more sense as I fly to Mumbai tomorrow and frankly Baga was doing my head in a bit so I was happy to leave and see somewhere new.

We got a taxi to the hotel we booked but not before the driver tried to tell us the hotel no longer existed, had changed it's name or some other bullshit story! We're staying at the Mayfair Hotel (it's not as nice as it sounds but the people who run it are lovely!) and he tried to tell us it was now called the Mafia Hotel, I mean come on!!

Anyway we checked in and then had a walk around the city and took some pics of the Portuguese influenced buildings. A lot of places seem shut so I don't know if Monday is a quiet day here or something but seemed a little like a ghost town!

We got a tuc tuc up to Old Goa and got dropped off at a church on top of the hill called Church of Our Lady of the Mount which had a great view over the city and we just about got there in time to see the sunset. It was really peaceful up there and seemed like the perfect way to end my trip to southern India.

Off to Mumbai tomorrow so looking forward to seeing what craziness that brings....
