Everything else there could make the life miserable. The first thing was it was too big with very less illumination . In the night, if you open the back window of your apartment, you will have a feel of staying in the graveyard. The noises of unknown animals in that darkness can be stressing. Bathrooms of the Pousada were free home to lizards, frogs and spiders. I feel lucky not to see any snake there! The trees planted there were the trees with very small leaves and many thorns. The seed carriers were yellow in color and used to fall all around in the ground. They never appeared green!
I came to know that we are staying there because one of our colleague, very choosy about living places did not like in Canoa and he requested to shift us there. At that time I thanked him that if he is happy here, what could be Canoa!!!!!! But later I came to know Canoa was much better place to live. There I remembered a phrase from my mother tongue, people who are too choosy, generally end up with the worst!!!
