Fondest memory: The bamboo restaurants and the shanty cottages on the beach of Calangute is teared down every year when the summer monsun starts and some of them are build up again in October when the tourists season starts. Maybe the cottages are too fragile for heavy wind and rain? Actually this is not the reason. There are some disputes among the poor restaurant owners on the beach and the hotel owners, who say they loose money because the shanty restaurants steel their customers. Lobbyism by the hotel owners have resulted in a goverment fee every season of 50000 rupies for each restaurant on the beach, which is an enourmous amount for a poor man. I don't think this is fair. Please be wise when you are here and eat on the beach.
