|A selfie to start the day with - Ramu meets Pimputkar after 47 years-seemed like yesterday :)|
Candolim is a small town in the western Indian state of Goa. Standing on the shores of the Arabian Sea, it’s known for its amazing Beach and to the north, lively Calangute Beach. In the south, the sturdy walls of Aguada Fort, built in the early 1600s under Portuguese colonial rule, surround a 19th-century lighthouse. The whitewashed, centuries-old Church of St. Lawrence stands on a nearby hill.
Flea market Arpora:
With food stalls offering cuisines from all over the world, the Saturday night market is every food lover’s paradise.For street shoppers who love flea markets Goa is a dream come true. Be it chilled beer, warm chocolate waffles, junk jewelry, handcrafted art pieces, tattoos, good music, scarves, hammocks, or spices, the flea market have it all.
Day 2 at O Resorts was a leisurely affair.The day began with joyful greetings, warm and vigorous hand shakes, beaming smiles, hearty embraces, emotional exchanges, some backslapping, humorous interludes & selfies. Breakfast was served at the special raised wooden floored lobby open at the sides. An elaborate spread was awaiting us - an array of South & North Indian & continental dishes to cater to every palate . Post breakfast some headed down town Candolim for exploration & sundry purchases while others headed to wards the beach to relax, indulge in sport, sip beer & wolf down some incredible sea food - Gill and Livleen fell into the latter category. Yet another team (quartet of Rajat,Pimp,Bhav & Guvrus) sneaked away for a quiet game of contract bridge.
