Happy New Year!
As its 10:30pm here on New Years Eve I better start by wishing everyone a happy and healthy new year. Thank you to everyone who has supported us through the turbulent times of 2020. Hopefully 2021 will be the brighter future we all deserve.
Here are the final photos from our Christmas Celebrations, the college students we help had the chance of going to Palolem Beach in South Goa, this was the furthest we have taken them and I don't think any of them had previously been to Palolem so it was a great day out for them.
Nearly all of them were 18 or over so the day was not quite as hectic as our previous two parties. It took around 2.5 hours to ride down on a collection of motorbikes, most of the older boys had licences so instead of hiring a bus we went down in twos and made the trip itself a part of the day out. We had planned to set off at 6am (Robert was ready), although most arrived around 7am and I think we left around 7.30 in the end.
Even though it was a long way to ride, it was still enjoyable in the cool morning air. Once we reached we walked down the beautful beach and found a room for 300 rs to keep our belongings for the day. We then headed north through a small tidal river to a rocky area where they enjoyed splashing, exploring, taking photos and chatting. It was so quiet and chilled.
By 2pm we were getting a little hungry so we headed back and found a beach shack and had a glorious meal, and then finally headed back home before it got dark
