From Jay:

Pre meeting before seeing another NGO (swift laundry). The workers were rescued from the sex trade

Then lunch somewhere in Goa.  This was the best meal of the entire trip for me.

We visited another NGO.  Then a trip to a Tibetan market.

Finished the day at a night club situated at the top of a large hill requiring a two-minute drive in an open jeep to the top.

Pool side at the club.  This concluded the longest day of the trip. I was up at 6am, then I finally crawled into bed at 4am.
