This should have come earlier. I apologise for the huge delay.

Goa is a fascinating state to visit! Think of it as a combination of India, the Maldives, Portugal and Brazil: fabulous beaches, majestic churches, interesting cuisine and exotic people. It has been an important place for hippies and mystics too. Anyway, next up GUJARAT!
