It’s Sunday, so what do the people of Bombay like to do? Head to the beach! Juhu and Girgaum (Marine Drive) Chowpatty are the most popular ones.
Going to the beach in India isn’t like going to the beach in the West though. You won’t find any bikini clad sunbathers. Instead, the beach resembles a circus scene.
Cows roam freely.
Monkeys perform tricks.
People frolic fully clothed in the water. And vendors line the shore.
There are coconut sellers. Balloon sellers. A guy selling flutes. And women selling bangles and henna stamps.
If you get hungry, there are also plenty of snack stands to cater to your appetite.
Of course, there’s the weird and wonderful as well. Such as these animals being hand crafted out of sand.
It makes a very entertaining day out!
