In the mid-eighties John McBeath and his partner Sue left Australia for India with the dream to open a European-style pensione in an old Portuguese villa in Goa. After several visits to India they had realised that Goa with its European influences, pristine beaches, and laid-back tropical lifestyle was at the start of a tourism boom. Now told for the first time, this is the alluring true story of what happened: of the locals, expatriates and visitors they befriended, of the colourful, hilarious and sometimes confounding experiences that both enriched and threatened their relationship

This is a rather strange travel book. I found it rather sad, and a documentation of what happens to Westerners sinking into a different culture, in the worst sense of this. I was glad the writer survived this time, but certainly did not want to visit Goa after reading this. Not a patch on those classic travel writers like Patrick Liegh Fermor, Bruce Chatwin, Eric Newby etc.
