Goa and monastery

I made it safely to Goa to begin the last part of my trip, southern India. Goa is mostly beach and jungle, and mellow and laid back--a far cry from many of the cities I visited in the North!

Here are a few pics I took today. As you can see, the cows are welcome to sunbathe and the dogs are fat and happy! The architecture is heavily inspired by Portuguese style, because the Portuguese ruled in Goa for two centuries. It's a lovely place.

In the third photo down, those are all eagles--amazing! After Goa I will visit Hampi, which is close, and possibly Kerala before I return home.

Below are pics I took while visiting a monastary in Pokhara, Nepal. Another first for me!
