Snapshot: Agro Tourism on an Alphonso Mango Farm near Ratnagiri

11 May 2013

Sublime ride out of Goa into southern Maharashtra. Good roads, lite traffic and nice curves on the hilly NH-17. All the signs are in Hindi now; a sign that I’m in North India. Left the highway and got back to the coast near Ratnagiri and staying with the family that runs It’s a farm-house on a 40 acre Alphonso Mango farm with a hill-view of the ocean. I got in contact with them as my father supplies them with organic fertilizer. Enjoying the clear night sky here. I’m 16 degrees north and can see the Southern Cross and Polaris, the North Star.

From here to the largest city in India tomorrow…
