While passing through Goa I had the pleasure of spending one night in the Panjim Inn in the town's Fontainhas district and what I discovered was that, far from having eradicated all of its colonial past in favour of a meaner and more spiritless urban landscape, this part of India has thankfully retained the beauty and architectural taste of a bygone era. The interior decor of the Inn is comprised predominantly of dark wooded furniture and rattan chairs, with each room possessing the spindled treasure of a four-poster bed replete with lace canopy and starched counterpane. The Inn also possesses the cool arbour of the veranda upon which one can take one's meals. The staff are gentle souls who conduct the affairs of the inn with efficiency and a refreshing quietude.
