Arriving on the shores of Palolem after six weeks of adventures across India and Nepal, my sister Sally and I were ready for some quiet time and a place to heal.
When Sally and I found the beach in Goa, we found the respite we sought from the seething masses and perpetual motion that makes up India. It was a place to relax.
In India, peace is only for a moment. We had many visitors at the beach in Goa, the most persistent – and cutest – being the peanut-wallah.
