Ok, we've booked to go back to Goa next easter having missed out this year.
Having had a wonderful 2 weeks back in 2008 our departing memory was sitting in a beach shack whilst the police and a crowd of heavies descended on us and tore the shacks down around us.
Being in that situation scaring our kids did take the gloss of things somewhat at the time
I appreciate the next season is yet to start but what were the high and low points for the 2008/2009 season were there changes for the better or for the worst and what do you think the near future holds.
As for the pulling down of unlicenced shacks, yet again they get this wrong. Quite a few shacks ran all season with no licence, and towards the last few weks decide to show who is the boss, and pull down the offending ones, didn't matter one bit to the owners as they were due to take them down anyway - so saved them the job.
I know some have said it's not good to see with tourists around, but it's the way of India, and we have to put up with it or move on - some of the offending shacks have had them pulled down mid-season, and then as soon as the hit squad has been they are back up and running again (wrong in my opinion)
It's the authorities who get it wrong with every aspect of Goa, too late, too long debating, can't be bothered, not our problem.

Don't think we will be taking out any ham, bacon or sausages this season just in case!
Okitsme, I don't think you will notice a lot of change but I think there will be a lot less Brits this season going by the number of cancelled charters
but its back up now to 79rps to the £ hopefully it stays there as ive just heard that our kind
