Love Goan curries although I'm a bit concerned about the Russian influence creeping in now - why the hell is there so a love affair with Russia in India now? Went to Goa at Christmas and many of the restaurant menus were entirely in Russian and it detracts from the meal when the other customers are so pi***d that they keep dropping the bottle of Vodka the've hidden under the table! LOL
You are not going to like what you hear
The russians are there in Goa for the same reason the Brits are there, or the israeli are there....
Don't tell me it is beaches, dont tell me it is culture, and dont tell me it is cuisine - Most of them don't get a rat's a** about it
One word - CHEAP.
There are packaged tours touted, marketed and sold in UK, Russia, and a few other European and countries of the FSU. Charters fly in just like they do to Sharam-el-Sheik. Both countries have nasty lousy dreary winter, and seasonal workers and other groups feel it is cheaper to be in Goa than in other sun-n-sea destinations.
The drunk russians in goa, drunk brits in the former british carribean colonies where virgin vacations or monarch flies Outcome is the same - mediocre food served to already sloshed vacationers..
