Panaji, Goa

After a few days of beach time in North Goa, I headed on down to the capital city of Goa state. Panaji (also known as Panjim) is a great example of how diverse India is. Goa was a Portuguese territory until 1961; in fact, Indian military forces had to invade Goa long after the 1948 reunification as one of the last holdouts to a united India. The influence of Western European culture is palpable and prodigious. My home for a few days was a sweet little place in the Latin Quarter called Alfonso’s Guesthouse. Here a few pictures of Alfonso’s and the great little Catholic chapel at the dead-end of the quiet residential street.
