After tea we went to Panjim to rent a motorcycle. They didn't have any available, so I got a scooter for a day. The bikes will be back and available tomorrow.
We doubled on my scooter back to the house, where we picked up Ulrike's scooter.
India Bike Week is next weekend at Vagator Beach. Our plan for the day was to head to Vagator and find a place to stay the weekend.
En route we stopped at Kenny's Breakfast Place for a western breakfast.
Upon arrival at Vagator, two gentlemen were kind enough to point out that our ears were dirty. They did this, of course, by scraping our ear canals with a pair of metal surgical instruments, and revealing the wax and sand inside.
We found a nice little guest house for rent. Clean and convenient, a good value for INR 1000 per day.
Across the street we stopped for mango sodas before heading back to Panjim via the beach villages.
Our final stop for the day was the SEQC (Sunday Evening Quiz Club, pronounced sexy) quiz night at the International Centre Goa on the south end of Panjim. I was surprised to discover that Ulrike was a regular.
The topic of the evening was music.
During the qualifying round, everyone answered the same questions on paper. I think there were 32 questions, half about Indian music, and half about western music. The highest scoring 8 people from each of the East and West columns moved on to the main event. Both Ulrike and I qualified and were assigned a teammate from the East side. I believe I had the highest score from the West which, considering my knowledge of the music-that-the-kids-listen-to-these-days, was quite a feat.
Despite our best efforts, my and Ulrike's team ended in last and second-last place. Nonetheless it was a very fun event and a great (and late) end to a busy day.
