I was put up about 10 km from the trendy part of town the first time I went. Took us about a week to jump through the nightmare bureaucracy a work permit and bringing in Scientific gear into the country will force you to deal with. We stopped going out after awhile because we didn't want to spend an hour plus driving 10 K in the worst traffic I have ever seen where they use the horn as a turn signal. That and the kids knocking on your window at every intersection begging for money. Whole blocks of families on the street living under tarps on the side walk so you get to see them bath and cook. I also had the pleasure of going deep into some of the worst slums near the port where they stored our gear. No worries about safety though as about 15 guys were hired to keep an eye in it. 555 No, joke.MarcTwoSix;322758 said:I was pleasantly suprised by it.
I stayed on that high end street on the water
But went all around.....wasn't as bad as I anticipated
If your down by the Gateway to India and Leopold's I can imagine it wouldn't be so bad. But that is the "expensive accommodation on top" Chob is talking about. Now, Goa, it was pretty nice, but so many other places I would rather go for a beach. I did enjoy the very liberal pharmaceutical laws they had there. 555 The Concierge at the Hilton was making runs for me, had it all delivered.
