For the next couple of days we enjoyed good food, cheap drinks and (reasonable) weather. Many of the other travelers here all had the same mentality just to chill out- and so we joined them. I have a feeling that Palolem is what Calangute used to be like, fairly untouched and low key
The Kiwis and I decided to bust a grove and head further south to the state Kerela. We booked a sleeper train which typical Indian time was 3 1/2 hours delayed and didn't arrive till 3.45am, so we 'slept' on the platform and just had to wait. After about 16 hours in the train I reached my stop at Ernakulam, and the kiwis had another two hours to go on the train as they were heading to Alleppey- the best place to hire a house boat. This was my first time solo traveling in India so I was pretty apprehensive!
Overall, Goa didn't turn out to be a complete failure and Palolem is a definite tick on my list.
