Wednesday, 20 Dec 2006: The Miramar Magic January 12, 2007Posted by Arun Rajagopal in India, Travel.
arunWoke up early morning to catch the sunrise at the idyllic Miramar beach. Took a long walk on the beach while plugged into music. Watched the barges lugging iron ore sail by, dogs chase each other and birds swoop around. Felt like the happiest soul on Earth. 🙂 Left for Calangute in the afternoon. Managed to find a decent room in Calangute Residency, albeit just for a day. Was OK with me! Apparently the season was beginning two days later, when room rents were set to soar. Booked myself for a guided North Goa tour for the next day. Soon hit Calangute Beach, my first real beach experience in Goa. Was great, walked from Calangute to Baga, not before dashing off for a jet-ski ride. Devoured seafood from numerous joints on the beach. Wondered how my tummy shaped up into an endless pit. Picked up some fancy beaded jewellery on the beach for a bargain price. Wandered along the beach still sun dipped into the sea… dined late evening at Suiza Lobo, very much recommended. All nightclubs were closed down, owing to some security threat. Snuggled into bed, MTV still blaring.
