Let’s not talk about New Orleans during Mardi Gras. Wow-wee! Suffice to say it’s an anything goes, alcohol-fueled, sexy party. The French Quarter is where it all happens. There’s great music here, including some of the best jazz you’ll ever hear. And the food is uniquely New Orleans. Gumbo, anyone? I love the architecture in the French Quarter. And the uninhibited nature of things. I think I’ve seen it all here. If The United States had an Amsterdam, New Orleans would be it. Or would that be San Francisco? :)

The main beach in the heart of the city, this is just a few minutes drive from the Panjim Main Market. Being is such a location, this beach is almost everytime crowded. The scenic beauty is awesome and the main reason is that this is the mouth of the Mandovi River. The slope of the beach is gentle and thus this place is ideal for swimming. You can also go for a morning or evening walk along the beach or sit and enjoy some snacks sold by the sellers who sit on the shores. This is however not the best beach if you are seeking one with lot of serenity and peacefulness.
