We may have walked all over Thivim the previous day, but that wouldn’t stop us from travelling to Badem to visit Crispin‘s Grandmother.
Our last visit to Badem was pretty much a disaster as it involved us hitchhiking all over the place.
Our trip to Mapusa was by the usual bus. We were accompanied by Dora, who for some strange reason buys half tickets for all of us. And the stranger thing is that the conductor gives her them knowing it is for us!
Anyway, our journey from Mapusa to Badem was extremely comfortable as we got a ride in a car, yes a real car, and one with an AC as well :O
We bundled ourselves in and reached there quickly. Picked up charcoal on the way for the barbecue in the evening.
Crispin’s Grandmother greeted the four of us with ample food, cold drinks and mango juice. You know I love to eat, don’t you?
After a good deal of eating and some TV watching (the first in Goa for the whole week), we finally left the place a little past 2.30pm and got a drop right back to Thivim!
Barbecue preparations began a little after we got back. I began to cut up the dried coconut leaves that would be used to keep the fire burning.
Did manage to get some PC work done as well before they returned, but I really missed the internet then (a geek’s only link to the world!)
The barbecue was good fun, with us eating, drinking and singing till midnight, after which we washed up and hit the beds. The next day would begin early.
