San Joao Festival at Salvador do Mundo (Bardez)
San Joao Festival at Salvador do Mundo
I have just returned home from the fun and frolic of the San Joao Festival at Salvador do Mundo organized by Mario Fernandes and his friends.
The occasion was a great success. There must have been over 200 people present, including foreign tourists. Among the folks I met were Tim DeMello (Toronto), Joel DeSouza, Cecil Pinto, Pamela DeMello -wife of Frederick Noronha, and John Eric Gomes. The crowd was entertained by songs by various artistes and local talent. This was a Green "Eco" event, with no prizes, no alcohol, no competition and no plastic plates or cups.
"Pez" with "Miskut" was served in coconut shells - it was excellent. This was followed by the main course of "Xitt-codi" on banana leaves.
Kudos to the organizers for a well planned and executed event, and my best wishes for continued success in future events.
