Judging from my posts of the last few weeks, you may think it is the presence of the catholic culture, brought to the region by the Portugese, that attracts me to this country in the first place. This may partially be true, but there is more.
Like the whole stretch of land between the Arabian Sea and the mountains of the Western Ghats, Goa too gets its fair share of monsoon rains each year. This results in an abundant natural green cover which is typical for the whole of India’s west coast. It’s green all around you, with all the magnificent trees and plants of a tropical landscape.

The view through your open window can sometimes give you the impression of living in a painting of Rousseau. I mean of course Le Douanier, Henri Rousseau. And if you’re lucky, you may even hit upon his last Dream!
