In my blogging absence you may have thought we were still sitting happily on the beach in Goa. OH I WISH.
We did spend three weeks there, and even three weeks is hard to write about because there was no drama, no stress. We had a cheap but lovely room on the beach. It was the end of a full year of glorious travel. So we rested.
It was Diwali, we enjoyed the candles and fireworks
We ate the most wonderful food every day
Our kids walked to the local chai shop each day to buy yoghurt and fried breads for breakfast
We did our Christmas shopping
We did lots of people watching
We made friends
We wondered about the circus girl who performed everyday on the beach. Where does she live? Does she go to school?
And everyday, we saw the sun go down
Drank one of these
And were grateful for family time, beauty and quiet.
Leaving was when the drama began. Stay tuned!
