India has some 1100 mill people and have an area of 3,3 mill km2. Ten times the size of Norway. 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.
Compare this to the weather in Oslo, Norway.

Goa is situated on the West Coast of India. Goa used to be a Portuguese colony from 1510 till 1961 when the Indian Army invaded and annexed Goa. On the link you have the details of the military operations.

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.

Departure with train from Norway

The bleak, dark, frosty line tracks at Tønsberg railway station.

The arriving train in the dark. It was 2015 hours and the train was 15 minutes late. Not unusual.

Arriving at the Oslo Airport, Gardemoen. Now it was time to sleep sitting up before the departure the next morning at 0515. The plane departed on time.  

The following day, Wednesday February 23rdh, we arrived in Goa late. It is 4,5 hours time difference from Norway, so we lost these hours on the way there, but will reclaim them on the way back.
