4) Go for a food trail, buy your spices and buy better gifts –

The good folks at @airbnb hooked me up with the most insane Goan food trail in Saligao today. It isn’t often that you sit down to a meal that is both delicious and a solid education. Over the many courses of our leisurely lunch, the amazing Odette Mascarenhas took us through the history of food in Goa, and how flavours were introduced or transformed by different residents, communities, immigrants and invaders. Each course was representative of the flavour and palette of a different community and went so much deeper than the standard fish curry, vindaloo, sorpotel menu you see at tourist traps. I understand Goan food a little better today. And I understand Goan siesta MUCH better today. Now if you’ll excuse me, goodnight #LiveThere #InGoa
