Om Beach

I guess a trip to the tropics wouldn’t be complete without a stay at a beach. The original plan was to stop at Agonda Beach in Goa but just south of the Goa border in Karnataka we got waylaid at, wait for this, Om Beach where we stayed at the Nirvana Cafe. The thing that set this and probably many other Indian beaches apart was that a significant part of the scene were the cattle, mostly very docile bulls. They were no trouble and often seemed to just want to soak up some sun themselves.
