We woke got out the boogie boards and headed out for an 8am surfing lesson. Erica was still screaming and ran off about 5 minutes because she thought she saw a .... fish (about 3 cm long to be precise she claims it hit her then chased her)!. We then had a quick shower and set off on our self made tour of North Goa on the bike. So far we have gone right down to Aguada fort.

We then stopped for a couple of hours in Candolim catching up with e-mails and blogging and found we were in proper brits abroad territory and full of package holidays. If I had my union jack shorts and a hanky for my head I would have donned them there and then. So we sat back listening to the abba greatest hits record with a few large kingfishers, I had a fish curry and eggsy had a beefburger and chips (as she still felt delicate). A couple of beers later and it was time to make a move before driving got too dificult. We explored Calangute another package holiday destination before heading down similar streets selling all the same tat to get to the famous baga beach. Erica then started to feel a little faint and said she felt sick. I pulled over the bike and as I did so she projectile vomitted all over me, the bike and herself. She managed to get off again and was sick for about five minutes being shouted at by the local men.

We then cut the trip short and headed back to our deserted bit of Goa. Alex as promised cooked us a chicken curry a huge plate of rice, salad, Goan bread and we managed to eat about 1/4 of it, erica had half a plate of boiled rice before running to the loo and I finished my food before I had to run for the loo. Only days ago we laughed at the girl at the airport in the same condition. I only managed one large Kingfisher before I had sweated so much that it was time to try and get to sleep.

We will see how tomorrow goes but will probably spend the morning at the beach. We are due to leave North Goa tomorrow but cant get a train, a bus, and a taxi is too expensive. If we can find a way to stay cooler we might stay another night. 

 

We will rebublish this post with what else we find. Its 12pm and we wanted anywhere with A/c. We found an internet cafe. Result.
