One eye-opening thing we were introduced to in Goa was the young kids that ran shops and markets, often no older than 7 or 8! Although young, they had great math skills for their age, haggled with nerves of steel, and had the business savvy of someone with an MBA.
We spent most of our time lounging on the beaches, avoiding cow patties (which were plentiful), and savoring many curries. Our favorite spot was Palolem Beach, despite the aggressive vendors that patrolled the sands. Tourist huts along the beach get rebuilt every year because of the summer-time monsoon, however, due to an unusually long monsoon, construction was still underway during our stay.
