Goa Freaks: My Hippie Years in IndiaGoa Freaks: My Hippie Years in India by Cleo Odzer.

Goa Freaks begins in the mid 1970s and tells of Cleo’s love affair with Goa, a resort in India where the Freaks (hippies) of the world converge to partake in a heady bohemian lifestyle. To finance their astounding appetites for cocaine, heroin, and hashish, the Freaks spend each monsoon season acting as drug couriers, and soon cleo is running her own “scams” in Canada, Australis, and the United States.


During my visit to Goa I stayed on Palolem Beach and visited the other beaches from there. Beyond the beaches Old Goa and Panaji are highlights.
