So we went to Goa. Again. It is such a lovely place. I plan to retire there you know, like some 40 million others… buy a small plot of land near the sea, open a shack, not do much, eat a lot, go for walks and hang out with the locals. I love the Goans. Love them, almost as much as Goa itself. I love the way they smile, I love the way they talk and I absolutely love their quirky names. Met a boy named Beauty and a girl named August. So sweet and unassuming, both of them. Like their names. And then, there is the sea. It sighs. I do too.
I want to retire tomorrow.
