What more could one ask for?
Watch Cricket World cup finals by the sea and you get to keep the cup too!
After 28 long years, the World Cup finally is ours!
There was just one question ever since the matches started in India- the cup has come home to India, but will we get to keep it?
It was a perfect win - the Indian Captain at 91 not out hitting the final ball for a six and a win the country had been waiting for, for over 2 decades.
We had been meaning to post for a while now. If not write about all the beautiful things and places we have discovered and explored, at least just a few pictures.
But we get just too tired at the end of each day. More often than not, we doze off with the lights on. We, who cannot sleep unless it is pawfectly dark!!
But yesterday was different. Except for a visit to a nearby beach, we were mostly home for most parts of the afternoon and evening.
After all, it is not everyday that your country plays for the Cricket World Cup!
The beaches and roads were almost deserted and we found everyone around in the open roadside cafes, glued to their TV sets chewing on their nails!
It was good to see many enthusiastic foreign tourists supporting India too, with our national colours tattooed and painted on their lively faces!
Guess the craze, anticipation and euphoria is all pervading.
Finally, it was all worthwhile.
As our TV sets erupted when M.S. Dhoni hit the winning six of the innings, the world around us burst out in joy with fireworks lighting up the moonless night sky!!
For us, it will be a fantastic memory. The perfect end to a dream vacation by the sea.
Yes, we are here in Goa for just one more day.
The last few days passed by just too soon. We explored, we ate, and we played to our hearts content, but somehow it just doesn’t seem enough.
Goa is a lovely place and one could easily spend over a month holidaying here and not get tired. Wish we could turn back the clock and start all over again….
We shall start writing about all our discoveries one by one, but till then here are a few pictures we know you will love.
