A child on a beach in Goa I spotted this kid on a beach in Goa. He was playing with his older brother. They were probably a locals. I turned around a few minutes later and he was standing there alone, looking at something. I couldn’t figure out what. His brother returned a few minutes later. He’d gone to fetch ice creams from an ice cream tricycle that was standing on the road. This was in the town of Colva, which was the first west coast beach I’d been to. Fun fact, this place, and in fact, the entire state of Goa was a Portuguese colony up until 1961 (some 14 years afer India got her independence). It took a local rebellion and an invasion by the Indian armed forces to liberate the state, and a few islands around the area (which were also under Portuguese rule), from Portuguese control.
