    Fishing for Supper

    Fascinating watching the local fishermen at Coco Beach. The effort that is put into fishing appears tremendous.

    Starting with wading out with the long fishing net to create a loop, then with as many hands as possible dragging it back ashore.

    On the beaches og Goa you will meet many local girls who will make you a nice Hena Tattoo on your arm or on your leg. It takes really short time and they have a big collection of patterns to choose from. I took a photo of Itay my son watching the local girl making a hena on his mothers let.

    This woman I met at Palolem Beach selling cheap jewels and saris impressed me. She lived in north India (more than 1000 kms away) and used to come for a month down to Goa beaches just to sell the little jewels they produced up in her village in the north. She came with her little daughter several times a year. When she sells all the stuff, returns to the village for more and so. Her husband worked there in the country, so they could hardly be together… so different and hard lives!
