After a very noisy night trying to sleep with all the crackers blasting away we decided to stop bumming around and headed to the Western temples in Khajuraho. There are approx seven temples devoted to the Hindu Gods
After three hours wandering through the temple grounds we decided to try and organise some transport onwards to Varanassi. This proved difficult as the only bus that goes there had apparently crashed and there was no replacement. After checking out flight options with Indian Air (too expensive) we asked around about other buses and taxis. We eventually discovered that we could catch a taxi the ten hours for only 4000 Rupees ($120 AUD) so we figured this was the best option. We will continue onwards tomorrow afternoon some time. Our hotel manager is trying to find someone else to share the taxi with us to cut the cost further. It is amazing how cheap you can get a cab for around here and we think this is what most tourists do as the public transport is very slow and can be unreliable.
We also did a bit of shopping today. Rick is getting a top made as they don't cater for large western sizes and the sleeves came to his mid arm. It's costing $8.35 AUD for a tailor made top! Bargain! Now we're off to Amy's Restaurant for some dinner before the noise of the fireworks kicks in again.
