Catch a 'Cow Council' MeetingIn the southern Indian beach town of Mamallapuram, Tamil Nadu, you'll find the 'Cow Council' meeting in fair weather just before sunset. All the town's cows meet to check in each evening and then linger for about half an hour. This phenomenon is best observed from the beach, where you have the best chance of a cow approaching to insist on a quick pet. There are a variety of rooftop terraces nearby for those who wish to watch this remarkable gathering from a distance.
