Now I'm finally arrived in my beloved Goa. Brazil is beautiful but nothing for me, I'm glad I saw it but I will probably not go back. It is quite expensive and if you are vegan / vegetarian and can not cook your food at home is difficult.
The breakfasts consisting of sweets, bread, fruit and a lot of different pies with meat in. And they had, at most, a salad which didnt contained some kind of animal on the menu. It became a lot of beans, rice and salad and lots of bread. Often it was meat in the beans so I always had to asked them before I ordered so I did get sausage in it.
We were in Bahia in Brazil and traveled around a lot, we rented a car and it feels almost like a must if one is to get around in a smooth manner. It was very very hot, i love the heat but it was times i thought it was a little too hot. Never in my life I have longed to freeze a little, but I did sometimes in Brazil.
After a tough journey from Salvador - Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo - Ethiopia, Ethiopia - Mumbai, Mumbai - Goa with a lot of turbulence and storms over Delhi and it should be added that I really do not like to fly. It's really not my thing, so I had a really tough time and thought why do I do this to myself "never again" !!!
And after hardly any sleep, a lot of tears and anguish we landed in Mumbai and my wheelchair is gone! Its gone and now three days later, it is still missing. But what shall I do I just have to cross my your fingers and call them each day and see if they found it.
But wow Im so so happy to finally be here, I feel really comfortable in Goa. This year we rent a new house again, it's become some houses over the years. It is a little nice to not have the same every year, but do I find one that I really like I probably would have taken the same. I have always traveled with my x previously, this is the first season without him. He will come down with his new girlfriend in late January, he said, but we are not staying in the same village.
