Goa Experience - Part 3

In the morning I sit in balcony and enjoyed soothing melodious music sung by the beautiful birds and light drizzle made it awesome. After refreshing musical morning I took short walk in the market which was almost closed. Only few vehicles are on the road. Weather is pleasant yet but will become humid soon. I saw many beautifully architected though deserted buildings…


 Today around 11 AM. I leave to Calengute Beach which is the biggest beach of Goa. I drove through the beautiful and lush green village area. It’s raining too but not heavily. Many churches and old houses are keeping me engaged. Green wheat fields spreading sweet aroma in the air and coconut trees are adding beauty in landscape. People are simple. They don’t disturb anybody. I can feel the essence of village Goa which is simply beautiful and relate with nature and culture. After crossing river I reach to Calengute city. It’s big city. Big means big shops, big market, big bungalows, big buildings and big pollution and big noise too. Everything is big here. I walked through the city to reach Calengute Beach where tourists are enjoying the way they can. Like lying, swimming, walking, playing, shouting, clicking pictures and taking selfies. Safety guard is alerting everybody for not to go deep in sea coz this is high tide time. Helicopters are also taking watch on them. Today waves are bigger then yesterday and roar of waves have been also huge. Today again I went into waves and again huge wave drenched me completely. My camera also gets wet but luckily it’s safe.  I walk a lot and watching people enjoying. I collected lots of oysters shell. For me this is a good mind relaxing exercise...



After this I way back to market where tons of cashew nuts selling.  Dry cashew, salty cashew, cashew with shell and without shell. Lots of verity is available here. After strolling in market I move to Candolim beach...

Candolim city is a posh area. All big malls, casino, hotels, spa, bar and restaurants are here. All big personality of Mumbai and Bollywood has bungalows, casinos; villas here. Small restaurants and bars are also very stylish though due to off season all are empty…



I went to Agoda fort first which is made by Portuguese to rule over India anyway again this is not my subject of interest to discover history of place. I am here to see architect and the people too, who are presently discovering the place by their own way. Drizzling has start now. Up above from here I can see the ocean in the clutch of fog. This fort maintained by archeological department. From here I back to city and find out a restaurant for food and fenny. After lots of struggle I find a restaurant where I am the only customer. First I order for fenny. This time hotel guy serves me fenny in a stylish way. He pour one peg of fenny through measuring glass and then pour water with my permission then wait for while for my reaction and then off. Today fenny was very light. Reason could be that this is beer demanding area and fenny is something like villagers drink so fenny would be good in village places. Anyway this is also not bad. After food and fenny I off to Candolim beach. Like all places tourists are enjoying here too. We see the beach from top of fort and back...



After this interesting visit I way back to Vagator via Mapusa. This is again a beautiful village area. Beautifully architected and bright colored old houses are making awesome combination with green background. I saw a beautiful blue and white combination house. I find well maintained small and big churches too. In Goa Villages are also well maintained and rich. I came across with an ancient church but couldn't go inside so I click few pictures from outside. Soon I was in my village Chapora where I take coffee in a same restaurant…

It’s raining in the evening so around 10 I off to dinner. Shops have been closed but one Punjabi restaurant is still open and few customers are taking food there. In Goa, only few Punjabis are running business. Some tables are in open, where four youngsters are sitting and drinking. They are deeply involved in their talks and drinks. And I think they are taking drug also but not sure. Anyway they are not bothering anybody and talking in a very decent way. With Punjabi music I finished food and walk back to room in dark and silence…
