GOA…or India Light

India-goa 034

I’ve been thinking about posting for awhile, but guess I’ve been enjoying the laid-back lifestyle a little too much…goa 028

After 3 days in busy Mumbai, it felt wonderful to arrive in Goa…like a breathe of fresh air…667

Patnem Beach, south Goa, is becoming like a second home…many of my friends come regularly to escape the cold at home.India-goa 004

Im greeted with friendly “welcome back” from the local shopkeepers and restaurants…they even remember my name…something im not great at doing…that is remembering the names of others..


One of the first stops most visitors make is the local cellphone store…to request a SIM card…which now means a wait of 3-5 days for foreigners. The most popular shop in Chaudi, our local shopping town is the Baba Vodaphone Store…

…which usually means stepping over a sleeping dog…


..or dodging a bull or cow….just to get into the shop.  The staff here are just incredible…so helpful and friendly..even with a store full of demanding foreigners and Indians.  goa 002

My favourite staff member …  helps me with computer problems,goa 021any inquiries I have, etc…always with a wonderful smile and great service.  I also enjoy watching them light the candles on their alter each morning…goa 018

We rely on good cellphone and Internet service …and thanks to Baba Vodaphone Store…they help us keep in contact with family and friends.
