Evening on the Mandovi

Tranquil Goa.

Last evening, my friend, Sudeep Dalvi, took me for a ride in his canoe, named Bismarque The Unsinkable, after the environmental activist, the late Fr. Bismarque Dias. Our starting point was the backwaters of St. Estevem village which then lead us into the broad canal of the River Mandovi.

We meandered in this rich ecosystem of mangroves with its soothing sights and sounds, the romance of our surroundings heightened by the thick monsoon air.

Check out the short video below.
