Journal Entry:
When I got up this morning I decided I needed a day off from the beach - that spot I can't reach on my back is just a little too sunburned. Since I've almost finished the last of my reading material I went on a quest for a bookstore. This being a major English package holiday destination I thought there would be a lot of options. Three hours and I don't know how many times walking across the village later I gave up. I found a couple places selling German books (I haven't even met a German speaker in Goa yet), and everyone had a suggestion on who might sell them, but no luck. The internet cafe's service provider is down so I can't even check my email. I had an early diner / late lunch and then played volleyball until after dark. A quick swim and shower then headed out to see what the northern beach was like after dark. It was almost as quiet there, but I found some English and Australian travelers to hang out with and it ended up being a late night.
