Cocktail Party in Goa

The first event in Goa was a cocktail party to welcome all the guests. The attire was non traditional and everyone was wearing Western cocktail dresses and gowns. I had an awesome Calvin Klein dress lined up but last minute splurged in Delhi and bought a designer flowy Goa-ey dress with my cousin's wife, Chandni. She convinced me I had to have it and as much as I felt like an Indian barbie in it, the wallet is kind've regretting the splurge now - eek. ANYWAY, the party was light and fun and a great way for all the guests to meet, esp those who came straight to Goa and didn't go to any of the Delhi events. It was held outdoor and the weather was downright balmy and breezy, pure perfection. There were funky performers surrounding the home and the decor was so different and fresh. Here are a few snaps from the night:
