India part 2: Candolim, Goa

Sign
Possibly the name of a character from a Gabria Garcia Marquez novel.

Frog
Hello, frog. This fellow was certainly the least lively of the creatures which we found in our room, and sadly, was even less so the next morning; we found his lifeless body splayed in the corner.

Sinquerim beach
Sinquerim beach: you'll find no tourists here, but it is a pleasing yellow colour.

Reeds
Nice view out to sea on a walk we took. Forgot to bring any water, and nearly died on the way.

Rock
More documentation of what could have been my final hours had we not...

Lighthouse
...climbed up the cliff and made it to Fort Aguada. Phew.

Cake
NOM NOM NOM

Ravanna model
It was Diwali, so all and sundry were making Ravana figures to burn. This fellow looks particularly evil. Probably a paedo.

Lamp
A delightful lamp in the delightful garden at the delightful Marbella Guest House where we stayed.. The monsoon rains were not so delightful.

Supermarket
"Excuse me, do you have any crisps?"

Man on the train
Virgin Trains should let you do this.

Great pics, tiles are almost certainly Portuguese, they are everywhere in Lisbon, even covering whole house façades.
