About your Localist

Mackinlay

Son of the soil Mackinlay Antonio das Merces Barreto, I hail from the village of Merces that borders Goa’s capital, Panaji. I love all things vintage Goa, all the more so after returning from Mumbai…you can take the Goan out of Goa but not the Goa out of the Goan.

We are like your local friends who love & are very proud to show you our world, our places, our culture, our heritage...we work along side fellow locals.
