... visit Ajanta Caves on the way to Jalgaon from where we had to catch another train. The reason for that was simple - we just wanted to take things more slowly and avoid the unpleasant saturation we recently reached. However, we woke up at 10.30 and completely changed our plans. We started to be worried that we would have to be in quite a big rush the next day in order not to miss our train.

Tomorrow though he has an Indian client to tend to and we will have a different ...
... their stilted English exchanging smiles and nods when words couldn't be mustered. The caves had the feel of an Indian equivalent to Ankor Wat. The carvings and rooms within took around 100 years and three generations to complete. The caves can be divided into three groups, Buddhist, Hindi and Jane. The Buddhist and Hindi were the most elaborately carved. They had intricate pictures depicting deities and scenes. The buildings within the caves were two or three stories ...
