In 2014 I returned to Goa for four months to transform Girl Gone Goa into a book. From my home base in Alto Porvorim, I photographed more than 100 “Goa Moments” on Facebook every day with the tag #GirlGoneGoa. These are little peeks into my everyday Goa.
You can receive new Goa Moments by email, just click the tab that says Follow.
#1: The motorcycle fish vendor
A fish seller on a motorcycle honks to alert neighbours of today’s catch (sound video, 0:17).
#2: Power outlets
What if all power outlets in North America used India’s on/off switch system? How much electricity would be conserved? The postcard next to the outlet is by Goan illustrator Joseph Diaz (“JoDi”).
#3: Fashion and Beauty
Goa is more than hippies and beaches. I joined local designers and jewellers who showcased their art at a fashion event at the Grand Hyatt Goa.
