Girl Gone Goa

Travel, sex, magic, and cycling in an Indian state

Goa Moment #23: An art walk in Panjim December 7, 2014

Before we head to the Goa Arts and Literature Festival Janis Harper and I toured art spaces around Goa’s capital city.

Janis and I visited Gallery Gitanjali, the Krishnadas Shama Central Library of Goa, the Fundação Oriente, the Sunaparanta Goa Centre for the Arts, and discovered newly-painted mural art from on the beautiful travellers’ Old Quarter Hostel just opened by Goa’s own entrepreneurial foursome, The Hostel Crowd.
