Goa means relax. White, sandy beaches. Rows of palms. Boys playing cricket. Silent people doing yoga. Kids bathing in the ocean and ladies working on their perfect tan. When the hippies came to Goa in the 70s, they were looking for peace and love kind of land and they found it here, in the quiet and tolerant state of India. Half of century has passed since then. Today, these people are on many different life paths. But still a few with gray dreadlocks might be spotted here. And still all kinds of misfits, idealists and dreamers come to Goa.
