  6. Other unseen part of Goa.

  7. A diff perspective of Goa synonymous with beaches! Loved the feni brew…heard that there are two types – cashew feni andtoddy feni!

  8. Goa is much more than its beaches. If one spends time to explore then Goa won’t disappoint. How big was this plantation?

    • Indrani Ghose says:

      The part of their plantation that they showed took around 20 minutes to tour. So not a huge area there, but they do have larger area of plantation I was told which is not open to tourists.
