Santo Estêvão (Jua)

We visited St. Estevao on 3rd January 2012 for Xmas Crib.

and I did not know there was a ferry point named Daugin-Tolto

and I did not know there existed a fort in St. Estevao.

I did visit the hillock for The Christ the King Shrine in mid 80s but don't really remember seeing a fort there. No, the fort wasn't built in last 25 years, infact, it was there long before Portuguese came to Goa..

..and while I was at it (on the net), I just discovered there exist a village named Gaundalim near Old Goa with it's own Church (Sao Braz)

So small is our Goa and I think I have not even explored 40% of it so far and I don't think I would ever be able to make it to 50% despite having all the time and money at my disposal.

Ok, over to..
