The sun had gone down but the beach was still alive with revellers. Despite the darkness our cameras did well in the low light. There were small playground structures for kids and horses were giving rides. Met a couple who were curious enough to start a conversation with us. They own a resort, LíAmour, in Goa. They said THEY are shocked by the crowd. They donít see that kind of crowds and itís more relaxing at their resort, so we must visit next time

Even as it turned dark, 7 pm, here were still masses of people playing in the water. Some of our group had gone into the water and said the undercurrent was quite strong. Would sure want to keep a hold on your kids in there.

On the walk back, we saw lots of hot food stalls grilling kebabs of meat and small whole fish, corn on the cob and lots of sweet treats. It all smelled good but we didnít want to chance it. Went back to the same restaurant as it was A|C and had non-vegetarian food. Decided to have the sweet corn soup, a podi dosa, and a Mexicana Chicken (salami) pizza. The crust was really good...not so much the chicken salami. As usual on this trip, because of religious restrictions, it was very hard to find good beef and pork.

Some of our group rented bicycles for 250 rupees for the day and rode around town getting lost. Others went for yoga at 5:30 and said this was a much better experience than a previous one up north.

Went to bed earlier as it was to be a 6:30 am start the next day. We were to explore all the remarkable, ancient carved stone temples, etc. and then on to Pudicherry.
