The e-book is obviously Odzer’s personal account of her existence and her reviews in Goa – the name itself indicates this, yet it’s tough to not comprehend her account of Goa’s Freaks as consultant of the total tradition of hippidom in Goa.

This isn't your vintage hippie story. Cleo’s model of Anjuna is a quarter infested with bothered younger druggies with a penchant for making pots of cash as drug runners. i locate it difficult to think that via all her highs and lows, her journeys and her going Coke Amuck, she could bear in mind with such readability the element of every dialog she had on the time.

The hippie communes of Ibiza, Kathmandu and Goa have usually been talked and written approximately yet infrequently by means of an insider.

Cleo Odzer is herself a former hippie, reincarnated as a decent educational within the US. She tells the whole tale, with brutal and uncensored honesty. Even on the threat of portraying herself as a narcissistic, self-centered and a law-breaking visitor of Goa.

Her tale zooms in on that group of extraterrestrial beings which relocated to a tiny stretch of Goa. although dependent in Anjuna, the Goa Freaks, as they known as themselves, saved hyperlinks around the globe. there have been a few in San Francisco. Many quickly shifted to Bali (Indonesia). Bangkok used to be a oft-visited vacation spot. They congregated round a number of down-market resorts in Mumbai too.

yet within the monsoon, the Goa Freaks fled the torrential rains and undertook 'scams' -- couriering medications to far away destinations. in this funds, they lavishly lived it up within the resulting season. Returns have been excessive. medicinal drugs received for $2000 in Asia may perhaps retail for $21,843 in Canada. simply to hold a person else's medications to Canada, they have been paid $8000 to $10,000.

On their drug gains, they lived lifestyles to the hilt. En path, they stayed within the Sheratons, the vacation lodges and the Hiltons, and met contacts on the Taj.

Her description of the outside and indoor events in actual fact recommend those are fueled by means of individuals associated with the drug alternate that is way more geared up than so much people may possibly dream of.

Odzer indicates the Goa police didn't be vigilant in curtailing the drug exchange. regardless of analyzing her letters and raiding her domestic, they only permit her off. compared, even Thailand was once very strict on medications, and Bali was resolute even opposed to nudism.

this isn't a narrative of Goa. it's a tale of the hippies' escapades, which has Anjuna because the backdrop purely by the way. still, it really is interesting reading.
