Panjim & Old Goa
We got a Taxi early morning from the Jungle Hostel heading to Panjim, which is the state capital of Goa, where we were spending the night before getting the train to Mumbai the following day.
Thankfully we had booked a little bit of luxury for our last night in Goa, staying in a lovely hotel called La Maison Fonthainhas. What a difference in the bed/pillows we had, just wish we were staying more than the 1 night!
We were met by a hostess, who explained to us we had to buy a card for 500 rupees which you then could spend on drinks. However, the price of the gin & tonic we wanted used 300 of that, which in comparison to other places in Goa, was expensive. This pub also had a e-serve system for beer, which there was a pump at the table and you could self-pour the local Kingfisher, so we got a couple of glasses and went to have a beer. The tap wasn’t working properly, so one of the bar staff came over to try it, and wasted some trying to get what looked to be 2 pints… except it was cloudy, flat and disgusting too!
