8/15 India's Independence Day! Lots of little kids in Goa running around waving flags, a lot are also flying kites.
Catherine and I woke up early this morning to investigate the possibility of doing yoga at the local ayruvedic center..but after a fruitless hike through a muddy residential beach road, we were informed that because it is low tourist season it is closed (a common explanation for most things we don't find). We do yoga on the beach, eat a hearty breakfast, lather on the sunscreen and rent a scooter for the day. Early in the morning we see a lot of fisherman reeling in their catch (lots of shrimp) and many locals swarming onto the beach to buy the fresh catch.
Our hotel's backyard. Lots of animals about, including a pig!
Stormy skies and showers for most of the day...But it ends on a beautiful sunset
Catherine and I at the Cheeky Chipati, our last dinner!
Back to the U.S. by 8/17, can't believe it!!!
