asino Royale, Goa, March 2014

Day 1, March 12: I land in Goa and get on the boat. The floating casino is dead this Wednesday afternoon. There are just five of us, including a couple of familiar faces from the Delhi circuit, including the beautifully busty Puja. Lacklustre play, low-action day. Puja and I call a boat and hit a Candolim shack. We score some good smokes and get a little flirty. I’m not worried. I’ve been bankrolled for ₹5 lakh and I have five days.
