A once fine house that dates back to Portuguese Colonial days; one of many that can be found tucked away in back lanes in Goa. This example may have been abandoned by its Portuguese owners when Indian troops invaded the colony in December 1961, and Goa became the smallest state in India.

While looking around the house I discovered that, although empty, it was being used to dry lines of clothing that could be seen through one of the broken windows, and a woman appeared who didn’t want to be photographed. but was happy for me to photograph the house.
