Happy Sao Joao Feast to you all...
This time we headed for North (we being from south- Salcette).
So, I am taking you to Siolim..
Well done Siolkars,
I thank you for keeping this tradition alive.
It was very nice of Remo to perform there too ( I think he is from Siolim too).
We enjoyed it and will definitely go there again next year (if in Goa).
