LOG ENTRY 29
After an unsuccessful attempt to conquer the raging Indian ocean with my Baywatch moves I decided to kill the day with my new friend Belo and hope that the monsoon will spare the roof of my new bungalow
|Rider's Log....... Lifelong journey around the world||
I really thought I made a good deal with my bugalow yesterday. Bargained it down so much, I even felt bad about it. Not so much anymore, waking up in the reception area with a huge hangover just hours after the monsoon took my bugalow's roof isn't the ideal way to start your day. I mean it is a great experience, wouldn't have done it otherwise but still something to complain about.
After getting over my morning sickness with a bottle of Goa beer I decided to fill up my belly with something European. The big English breakfast was surprisingly good and cheap with Heinz baked beans, a rare find in this part of the world. Belly full, head clear(ish), let's hit Goa for a sightseeing. Oh wait, the monsoon is still rage down like a vertical tsunami. As I realized how unfortunate the weather is, one lovely Indian receptionist suggested that it would be a smart idea to move the rest of my stuff from a half roofed bungalow. At this point I realized how intellectually challenged I am, having a chilled beer and enjoying English breakfast while my stuff getting soaking wet.
After sorting out all the issues with my room I decided to head down to the beach, the only place where getting wet is not an issue. Honestly the beach was amazing, sad that I couldn't capture it's emptiness and the giant waves which periodically tapped its shore. I mean the waves were just gigantic, could not resist to run in, Baywatch style, I even had the soundtrack of the series in my head. It was not so glamorous after the fist wave hit me thought so I realized these are much bigger waves than I can possibly challenge without a surfboard. The weather won the battle today, so the bottle local beer Goa whom I spent the rest of the day, planning for tomorrow and hoping for a better weather.
