I’m Back!

I’m back from a 4-day sojourn to that Indian paradise, which goes by the short-and-sweet name of Goa. I would have liked to have posted day-to-day, chronological details of the trip, but didn’t find the time, or more importantly the inclination, to make any notes while I was there. So instead, I shall post about incidents and thoughts as they come back to me, though not necessarily in the order in which they occurred.

I’d also like to say thanks to the Patenaudes for the wonderful holiday, and the excellent time I had with them.

Right you are, my fellow Goan! It's almost sacrilegious to speak of the two in the same breath! How can *anyone* prefer Kerela?

The only way you can call Kerala GOK is if you've never been to Goa.

Arnold said...

kunal - "GOK"?? What's that? Surely you mean "GOC", eh?

SwitchBlade said...

Definitely Goa is ten times better, where else would u get such cheap booze. Kerala is for oldies, not the youngish crowd
