I see I won’t be posting anything near to a day-to-day blog of our trip but I have posted more pictures from our six days in Mumbai.
Getting train tickets for the date you want to travel can be a problem in India. But we were successful and showed up at the train station almost an hour too early, proudly clutching our ridiculously cheap tickets, something like two euros for a seven hour ride. Unfortunately, our train was cancelled. After much confusion and running around in the train station, we found a bus to take us to Aurangabad.
Let it suffice to say it was a very long, bumpy and uncomfortable ride. We arrived at 4:00 a.m. and were greeted at our hotel with a cheery good morning. We spent a few days in Aurangabad recovering and visiting the amazing caves of Ellora and Ajanta.
I haven’t been able to upload any pictures from our days there yet but hope to soon. So far our trip hasn’t always been easy (understatement), but I’m loving all the picture taking opportunities. Also loving the people and the food.
p.s. The pictures from our days in Aurangabad are now up.
