So, today we went to this place out in the country side called Ellora. Imagine a rocky hillside, about 200 years of work and several thousand people, three competiting religions and what you have are the massive cave carvings of Ellora. We’re talking human made caves. Huge ones. Some of the them are pretty basic, but the main Hundi one was like walking through an Indiana Jones insipred set.

The bus trip was on basic Indian public bus, with everyone fighting to get on. Life here is rough. Buying the tickets involves pushing though a crowd of people all trying to buy tickets. No queue, no waiting, no civility.
