Early morning an ST bus leaves Ratnagiri for Panjim. Sometime later that day another bus might leave from Panjim to the Karnataka coast. That's what this trip has been like: a whole bunch of maybes and what ifs (what if I visit the snakes, not the beach?). If I get to Karnataka, finding Gokarna might be easy. Two things, though. There's a flood watch in Goa, and Gokarna might not have a working internet connection, as was the case at Mahabaleshwar, Alibag, Ganapatipule and other places. Some places people looked all funny and repeated 'internet' like it was a disagreeable animal. Anyway.
Oh, so probably no more crazy blogging until Bombay. And Gokarna is 'cow ear'.
