Thanks for all your support.
I reached Goa today. I have been mostly cycling - till 10/11 PM on the first two days. Not much sightseeing - all I got to see is beaches.
Here is a brief rundown of what has happened till now:
Day 1: Mangalore to Karki 190 kms (stayed at JKB’s house overnight)
Day 2: Karki to Margoa 160 kms (aka Madagaon/Marmugoa)
Day 3: Margoa to Panaji 30 kms. (generally resting, slow-cycling, sight seeing)
I am currently staying at Aditya Kelekar’s (of the yahoo group cyclonegoa) house at Caranzalem in Panaji. Thanks, Aditya, for the hospitality.
My leg’s are feeling a bit stiff, but nothing to worry about
I have written my blog in my book, but the usual software issues have come in the way of my doing some of the stuff. No pictures also, sorry, for delay due to solving some of the GPS issues with Windows XP . I have actually keyed in some of the blog text, but it is by no means complete, and I am in a hurry to return home now.
Expect the ride story tomorrow (assuming I can find a better internet center/more time).
My plan for tomorrow is to go and attend a conference on High Performance Computing : HiPC, Goa. HP (my employer) is one of the sponsors and I have a free pass. My legs can rest while mind works!
For the day after, my plan is to visit Dudhsagar, the highest waterfall in India. Advance info, just in case I can’t post anything tomorrow
Bye for now.
