Goa baby!!!!

This is the third time in six months that I've gotten a free ride down to Goa. The first was the second junket I was sent on from HT, to the Marriott on Miramar. One tip: never stay here. Zero view, zero beach and zero hospitality.
The second trip to Goa was this year in January for the launch of Shalom Goa. Now THIS is one 'shack' everybody who's going to Goa should check out. Six levels of wooden deck built over a trippy blue-lit pool (which you float around in), facing the beach and smack bang in the heart of Calangute. When you get to the Bandorkar Statue, go left, the road curves right and Shalom's right in front of you.
If you've been to Shalom in Delhi, this place amplifies the lounging experience ten-fold at prices on par with any Goan shack or restaurant.
Read: affordable.

Tomorrow, I'll be flying down with family for three days. Aunt Angelica, cousin Lou Ann and Lou Ann's hubbie Faisal. Never met Faisal, so should be interesting.
We're going to be staying on Calangute at the Casa de Goa (built like one of those boutique hotels that's very popular nowadays) and will be heading back on Friday.
Short but extremely essential vacation for me, considering the last was in December 2004!!

I know it's going be fucking hot, but it IS Goa.....
