Sunbeds again !!!!!

The tourism department are at it again now here in south Goa.Yesterdat two officials together with the police descended on Bogmalo beach and started to take every chair,table and sunbed off the beach and confiscate them.To make matters worse there are quite a few Brits here who have their own sunbeds and they were also told to remove them or they would be taken away.

Last week they also raided a number of restaurants and threatened to close them down because they were open after 11pm.

Oh dear, we arrive week after next and had hoped we would be ok at Bogmalo! Just have to hope it's a one off visit. Makes you wonder if they want tourists, they must realise that generally people come to Goa to enjoy the beach life.

All seems quiet at the moment no further visits from the Gestapo..Scouse,yes it also included Joets even though they had paid the licence for the beds.

Apparently there is going to be a final decision on how many beds can be put out within the next 10 days.Amazingly you have some of the tourism officials who want no beds at all on any beach in Goa, as a lot of the shack owners are putting out more than the 5 permitted.But sense should prevail with 20 beds per shack being allowed.Even though it's 3 months too late.

Oh we'll, just have to see what happens. Can't understand some officials not wanting any beds, don't they want a tourist industry? Crazy!
