i am in goa at the moment and will be here over christmas...
i am stayin in anjuna. the beach is not to crowded (thanks to the americans..) and there are some techno parties going on at night, even though i am not a techno fan, but it's fun...
anybody interested to join us for a pint (another biker i met and i) you are most wellcome.
we are staying at a family place near (200m) the beach in the street were the italian restaurant basilico is situated.
there is also an old church near the place. as they do rent out bikes there some bikes are parked in front of the place.
if you can manage come around for a ..
hello again from goa,
doing nothing the whole day is really hard, i tell you.
especially when it's 31 degree celcius and high humidity. i heard about the blizzard in germany, poor guys, seems to be really cold. the odds for white christmas in goa are around 1:12368984500668003645 ;-)))
anyway, i met some bikers here and we (gregor (another german on a bm) and me) try to organise a christmas party on wednesday 26.12.01. when you have time it starts at 19:00. when you go up the beach from anjuna flee market and go to the techno party place at the beach (north of the market), the restaurant-bar right from the party place is where we meet. i have invited some overlanders allready and hope it'll be fun.
at the moment i am still waiting for the spare parts my parents have sent me and gregor with dhl (tyres and a bearing for me and a starter motor and a bearing for gregor). guess what they charged me for the 10kg paket - 1000,- dm (500,- $)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cried for 4 nights.
and there is a reasonable 100% tax to be paid in customs (another 2 nights crying..), so the value of the paket is 127,50dm ;-))))
we hope it'll get here soon as i am keen to hit the road again (to do nothing over a long time is not my style)
otherwise things're allright here, it's just too hot.
have a lovely christmas (and remember - alcohol is not good for you!) and a happy happy new year, i wish you all the best,
