When I stayed at Colva Beach, there were two other tourists: one from Australia and an English guy who’d been travelling for seven years. No hoards of Europeans or drugs governed the quiet backwater beach back then. The biggest high we got was watching a local climb a coconut tree to retrieve young coconuts.
On weekends the one restaurant where I hung out felt overcrowded when an influx of rich Indians from Mumbai arrived to feast on pig on a spit. Mmmmm…if you were in Goa when I was, you’d know why I wouldn’t eat pig there.
