I usually refrain from clicking people. But on this day while generally pointing my camera at the sea and the golden light on it, for a moment without thinking much, I turned and clicked this picture. You can see that the three guys are also pretty unaware and walking. But the one on the right spotted me and guessed correctly that I clicked their picture. Next this happened.
They made a small scene, waving their arms and shouting a bit and demanded that I click another picture. So this picture has been clicked on demand. Then they crowded me and asked me to show the pictures. They said they liked the first one better! I agree. Then if you peer hard you will see two Indian guys in the background in the above two pictures.
I had not noticed that they were walking behind the first group of guys and hence they also asked for a picture. At that time I found it quite confusing why they wanted their picture to be clicked by me. But later when I was looking at the pictures, I realized that had witnessed the first scene.
But after this short interlude I was left to my own devices and I went back to clicking the sand, sea and the sun!
Decided to post a few more pictures from Goa. This one was clicked at Anjuna Beach.
The lady in the center was trying to play volleyball with one person but there were quite a few people just hanging around.
I did the banana boat ride this time. The composition of our group was such that instead of flipping for the customary two times, we flipped and gulped sea water 4 times!
Here was a person on a water scooter on the sea!
And finally there was the golden sea that held me completely enthralled.

I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
