Om Beach

Written on: Tuesday November 25th, 2008

A journal entry from: July 08 - Jan 09

Spent a couple of days cilling out on Om Beach before the long haul north - I was thinking about going to either Mumbai or Ajanta/Ellora. On Tuesday, 26th I was heading north through Goa when I noticed that there was a once-a-week train about to come through the station, heading to Aurangabad (just near the Ellora cave site), so I went that way. Otherwise, the plan was to go to Cafe Leopold in  Mumbai to look for work as an extra. I'm glad that plan got put off as that was one of the places that gunmen opened fire!

 

I will add phjotos when I am at an internet cafe that allows me to.
