Strange world we live in when alcohol is so cheap in a country where most states are “dry” and most Indians don’t drink. After all they are usually Hindu, Muslim or Catholic so not allowed of course!
This is GOA, a non-dry state, where many visitors, as well as the locals who are mainly Catholics – get very easily drunk for some reason.
Maybe this picture can demonstrate
The whole lot here cost Rs.210/-. That is 2 x tuborg + 180 ml bottle of honeybee brandy + 180ml of vodka (romanov) + 2 diet cokes.
At todays exchange rates that is £2.11 or Euros 2.60 or US$3.54.
And the most expensive items? = the diet cokes!
So if you don’t come to Goa for the sun, the beaches or the friendly people then I guess Goa tourism could attract you with cheap drink, providing you prefer alcohol to soft drinks!
So it got me wondering, with so little else occupying their heads, were the Kaiser Chiefs ever in Goa on a bender and was the original title of their song Ruby actually Rupee?
