It rained for about a half-hour all over North Goa last night. Don't worry, it's not the monsoon yet, still another ten days or so for it. This will make the weather very humid and muggy, so get an a/c room for sure, plenty of beer will also do the trick!
See you guys in Goa - but where?

some pointers: Feni is not something you would drink in a suit or even formal clothes. In bathing trunks or shorts, who cares about the smell! Also, get a good brand, in a good hotel, or if you are buying a bottle ask for something that should cost about Rs 100 upwards. Try one peg with a very cold Limca to top up. Cheers!

You have no idea how I look in bathing trunks or shorts - Feni would be quite palatable thereafter so I assume that everyone else will be tanking up.

My first (and till date, the only) visit to Goa was in '91 from college on a so-called "educational tour" of Bombay->Goa->B'lore. If binge drinking, ogling the women serving beer in the Bombay beer bars, bargain hunting on M.G.Road etc can be termed educational, then the tour served its purpose.
We did try feni in Goa and it felt like just another liquor for me. Can't say I liked it or disliked it - sort of just OK. Anyway, we did not do too much of that because even with a student budget, the usual IMFL stuff was so damn cheap - if I remember right, a small peg of rum was like Rs2.5.
Have fun, guys and take care. And don't forget to get a few snaps of Steer in bathing trunks.

Hey Steer, are you flying down just for this meet ? Or is it a kind of business trip with a little pleasure thrown in or vice versa ? And are you doing the Cochin - Goa run by car (Dicor) ?
