So we left Anjuna beach on Thursday morning with our bags that appear to be getting bigger every time they go on our backs! Every step we took we almost turned around to stay just one more night in Anjuna! It's not even that amazing we just got a lot Of free stuff here....local bus to mapusa...change....local bus to panjim....change....local bus to madgaon....change....local bus to palolem!!!! Yay! Got fished from a man who gave us a beach shack 2 secs from the beach for 150 rupees so 2 pounds.... Found a place to watch the royal wedding on fri major bonus and then met up with roses friend Charlie....so with Charlie despite our budget we headed with some others to what Appeared to be the most expensive restaurant in the whole of India!!!! an Italian restaurant and all we could afford was a pizza just with cheese!!! Not even a margharita!!! Sad times! Lovely catching up with Charlie.... We also then met back at the local beach bar ollie (radio 1 entertainment presenter...) who mumma and puppa b rose has of course invited to stay!!!! Evryone is seriously impressed by the address 1stonehenge is VERY cool in goa! We also met roses new love dan the man!
Day 2 ROYAL WEDDING!!! After our 11 am breakfast we sat in front of a tiny tv with all of the English in goa for the WHOLE day!!! we had been promised a flag from mumma d saying 'hello india' so we told everyone but sadly due to paint issues in ramsgate it did not appear! Someone put up kate and will flags and I got a bit emotional but rose quickly told me to buck up! We sat next to these lovely ladies who saw that we couldn't really afford to drink alcohol and eat food so they brought us two curries and....gin! Potentially up for a gin tear or two we still gratefully accepted and thy kept coming!!!
so front row seats, withthe speaks turned up we had prime place! We definitely the biggest supporters. I (rose) was happy as dan the man remembered my name so we had a catch up! Then the wesdng comensed! And as I am sure we are all aware, the bride was a beauty sight, my oh my, willys one lucky son of a gun! Buti am just going to say, my bridesmaid is definitely not going to look that good at my wedding!!
Had a great giggle wih everyone, singng and laughig, standing for the anthem. it was. Fatabulous occation! Right meg is back from the loo, so back to her!
Wedding over and so an English boy decides to get naked and run into the sea.... But he is not allowed back out as indecent exposure is banned in goa! So trunks back on and a giggle had by all some rich London Chelsea boys bought some hampagne to spray around not even drink and then invited us to another beach for a party and fireworks.... We accepted and off rose went on the back of ollie radio 1's bike.... I went with the girls in a tuc tuc a usually normal experience until one of the girls wanted to drive....wows!!!! We arrived and had fireworks.....everyone ate prawns for 500 ruppees but due to our budget we ate a 10 rupee chapati each with Mayo...... Back in a tuc tuc...bed.....!
Day 3 and 4 chilled on the beach swam.... Delhi belly has struck my bowels (sorry jb!) leaving on a train to gorkana tomo it's only 2 hours away and then from there we can book more trains without paying comission! We hate comission!
Hope everyone is dandy! Oh yeah last night we got 2 free beers again! W
