@adamgreenberg and I loved India. Although Goa ranked lowest out of the places we went, it was an experience nonetheless. The best part was renting a motorbike and zipping to the various beaches along the coast. Little Vagator, or Ozran Beach, was a beautiful place to find elusive peace in India. We thought this Shiva face carving was an ancient legend and of historical significance, but later learned some tourist carved it during the hippie era. Funny how we read into things too much sometimes. Still appreciate this carving and artistic talent!! . . . . Have you been to Goa? What's your impression of it? (Although there are maaaaany places to go in the state!) . .
