The Goan way.
The balcão in a traditional Goan house reifies the Goan idea of leisure. Where the matriarchs repair to in the evening for relaxation at the end of the day’s chores. These are now fast fading scenes. Who needs leisure in the Facebook era when you have so many ‘Friends’ to ‘Poke’ and ‘Like’?
This image was taken a couple of months back in the village of Oxel…
…and this one in 2007.
