After Lilia and family left, Noel showed me around the house which was both beautiful and extensive. We then simply relaxed and had a few drinks until dinner. It was nice not having anything planned for once. My first dinner in Goa was all one could have asked for, the highlights being mackerel racheiado (a.k.a. masala mackerel) and a great fresh mango curry.No matter how good the food in Northern India was, Goan food was what
had been waiting for and I was not disappointed on this night nor during my entire stay in Goa.
