Goa !

One should go to Goa to have a great holiday. 
 Goa was under Portuguese rule for centuries. You can see many cathedrals and churches built in the Portuguese style. The Se Cathedral on top is the largest cathedral in Southeast Asia.

 A park in Panaji, the capital.
 An alley in Goa which has a European flavour.
During Divali, the Hindu Festival of Lights, Goans make idols of the demon Narakasura and set fire to it.
Thanks to Mrs.Nesbitt and the good Roger for making ABCWednesday a grand success!

Dandeli- a village in the dense forest

 Dandeli is a small town in the Western Ghats. At present, it is receiving very heavy rain. The river Kali flows near it. The thick jungles of the Kali basin house many wild animals and wildflowers.

 Butterflies here are larger than what we see in the city.
 A trek in the rainforest of Dandeli is a wonderful experience.
My thanks to Mrs.Nesbitt, the author of the delightful meme ABCWednesday, and tothe dashing Roger who manages it so beautifully.
