The ping pong wizard and I made a decision to donate our ping pong table to the Goa Marriot Resort & Spa staff recreation room because we have been here over 4 months and have been receiving service and personal attention beyond the call of duty. The hotel is staffed with talented young people, many of whom have been promoted and moved away during our residency here. They are young go-getters and eager to help, usually refusing any kind of gratuity. I’ve had many of them tell me we are family. Their genuine concern for Scott’s welfare and comfort has made our stay a lot less lonely, too. So it was great pleasure to see these photos from the hotel’s “employee fun days” last week. I understand there are some really good table tennis players among the crew. We hope this table serves them well for many years to come.
