Express delivery thanks to a man with a van

Believe it or not, sometimes things happen quicker in India than they would in the UK. Yesterday (Tuesday), we found out that a room was available in Margao for us to start working next week – that’s if we could get our equipment there by Friday. Enter Jose Fernandes, one of our neighbours, who owns a ‘goods carrier’ (an under-powered metal cage on wheels).
Yes, he could pick us up with our equipment on Wednesday morning, 9am. He turned up at 8.30 and we were at the premises by 9am, which caught everyone out. In less than 18 hours, we had found out what needed to be done, and got it done. A miracle. Sainthood next for Jose? He’ll certainly get the job the next time we need anything moving.
PS: India are playing Sri Lanka in a one-day cricket international two miles up the road, at the Fatorda Stadium in Margao, today. Hope they win.
