India: Goa - East Meets West

India: Goa - East Meets West

Host Sian Richards guides us across the former Portuguese colony of Goa. Lush and beautiful, with an 80-mile coastline, Goa is a collection of towns, and one of India's foremost tourist destinations. A blending of eastern and western cultures, along with one of the highest standards of living in all of India, gives Goa its unique charm. We visit the 16th-century Basilica of Bom Jesus, which is world famous for housing the mortal remains of St. Francis Xavier, the founder of the Jesuits. The tomb was a gift from the Duke of Tuscany and each year hundreds of thousands of pilgrims make the trip here to offer prayers to the patron saint of navigation. Chef Marius prepares a traditional seafood meal, Mackeral Recheiad (stuffed). Next Sian meets Yolanda Britto, whose family runs a cashew farm and distillery; here she learns about making fenny, Goa's favorite spirit, distilled from cashew fruit. Then she sails with her guide, Manek, on a traditional Chinese junk and learns how explorer Vasco de Gama found his way around the Cape of Good Hope in the late 15th century and opened a route of travel from Europe to India. 07/09DE JSCA 30 min.
