We had reached Keri a village in Ponda, Goa. A wooden bridge over a marshland took me to the other side. I watched the birds chirping and diving into the marshes for their catch. As we reached the entrance of one of Goa’s spice farm we were greeted warmly by the staff with a garland and a tika on the forehead.
Four years back when I visited Goa and stayed in one of the GTDC resorts the experience was not worthy to be mentioned. The resort was in the middle of the city and was more like a clubby hole. This time around when I visited Goa and stayed at Miramar Residency I found the resort a decent sanctuary that could be worked upon.
