Coffee and bread
Because of the influence of Portuguese
Goa has a different characteristic compared to other places in India.
Purtuguese first landed in the early 16th century as marchant and conquered it soon thereafter.
The Portuguese overseas territory of Portuguese India
existed 450 years until it annexed by India in 1961.
Coming down from northern parts,
this somewhat liberal province was fresh.
There were women workers in the public.
There were churches and Christian Indian women
dressed shirt and long skirt rather than sari.
Poeple were drinking coffee, not only chai.
Bread delivery man bicycled around villages
in the early morning and the evening
with ringing bell.
Away from the busy cities
there were still good old scenery.
But old time hippyies were gone
and nowadays touristic beach bar
had becoming more popular
to collect tourists
just like Thailand’s Haad Rin beach scene.
