Summing it all up.

Martin T. to the right had pleasant and fascination trip to Goa in the period above.  This was Martin's first trip to Goa this year. Last year he visited Goa in the period Apr 6 to 20th, Nov 26 to Dec 11th and Dec 26th to Jan 9th, 2008. This time he went to insert his new front tooth.  In addition, two additional cap of decayed teeth. Then he bought himself some new glasses. Saved some money on the deal.

India has some 1100 mill people and have an area of 3,3 mill km2. Goa on the other hand has 1,4 mill inhabitants and the area is 3000 km2. Goa is the richest of the Indian provinces.

Above, you have a map that show where Goa is situated in India.The weather at Goa from BBC.

Goa is situated on the West Coast of India. Goa used to be a Portuguese colony from 1510 till 1962 when the Indian Army invaded and annexed Goa.

The former Portuguese colony of Goa is one of the most relaxed places in India. In the seventies when all of India was full with European and American hippies, Goa was really packed with them. Now most of the hippies have left, but new travelers keep pouring in. More  textual stuff on Goa and you can have a look at this slideshow from the net.

As usual, the plane to Goa leaves 0715, meaning Martin has to take the last train from Tønsberg the day before. Then there is a stopover at Oslo main railway station and Martin's favorite pub is the SideTracked Pub.

At midnight, it closes down. No more after that.

On to a local train to Eidsvoll that passes Oslo International Airport, Gardemoen.
