Boat rides at Panaji city

When you go Goa, you cannot miss the boat rides at Panaji city. They start plying the boats in the evening till 9pm in the night. You have a choice of few packages ranging from ride only, to food included. Every boat is decorated with several little light bulb that appear like stars hanging from the boat.

Boat ride at Panaji

We took a package for the ride only as we already had early dinner. Not to mention the water from several coconuts Rakhi is fanatic about which. The “malai” (half ripe coconut in the shell) is awesome. Nothing in this world tastes like that.

Some of the packages, like ours, include local folk dances of Goa during the ride. Some very nice dance steps that characterize typical Goa in the hearts of Goan people.

The boats will take about 100 people at a time and go for about 2km ride for an hour. We could see Panaji getting farther, lights making it dazzle in the night. Then slowly everything will start getting closer and a fun ride wil lcome to an end.

Church, Goa

While we were going back from Calangute to the city, we stopped by this magnificent view of the church. The lights were making it glow with divine beauty. Peace spread all over the dark night. The church standing right there with dignity of its “light” blessing everyone. I could not resist myself from taking a few shots while my wife was busy in her prayers.

Whale watchers


Lot of people come to Boston for whale watch. Just another group of people I spotted while on a big cruise boat used for whale watching.

Gradient


The light green touch to the water is actually a whale swimming just about at surface. White ventral part of whale appears florescent green in the water filled with micro-bacteria. The water has very low visibility thus giving the gradient effect.
