Demonetization Strikes On My Birthday: Budget Eating In And Around Amigo Plaza, Colva, Goa

It was my birthday and we were in Goa for a day or two of lazing around.

November 8, 2016, will be outstanding in the memory of many Indians! That night, it was announced on TV that one could no longer use Rs. 500 or 1000 notes!

 As it is we were pretty broke and I needed to find budget places to eat and enjoy.

Fresh fish above all!

I had surfed loads of restaurant reviews to find where's best, which one would suit us. Amigo Plaza, where we were booked, had a lot of eateries very nearby, according to Google Maps.

It was afternoon when we reached. We first walked across the road to a little tea shop and had a decent chai for some Rs.10 each. Then, we set out to explore and it was very exciting to see all the places I had noted online! 

The famous Leda which was too expensive for us and many other such fancy places are to the left of the little road from Amigo Plaza. Most of these places cater to the Russians.

All over the place you see Russians of all shapes, sizes, ages, genders and more, dedicatedly "enjoying"  a beach vacation. And I was much reminded of Soviet posters one saw as a child and of a hilarious comedy film I watched as a child.
