Catching the train from Mumbai to Aurangabad, I arrived at the ungodly hour of 04.40! I spent the rest of the day on chores, and organising a trip from Aurangabad to the Ajanta Caves the following day.
Arriving in Aurangabad on train
After breakfast, I checked out of the hotel, and left my bag at the train station. I had a bit of time to kill, so I went to the cinema, and watched ‘The Last Samauri' which was surprisingly average. Afterwards had lunch, checked the net again and made a couple of phone calls. Caught the overnight train to Aurangabad, and shared a compartment with the district magistrate – amazing who you meet!
Arrived in Aurangabad at the ungodly hour of 4.40 and caught a rickshaw to the hotel. Lazed around, and then ordered breakfast and put my laundry in before hiring a rickshaw so that I could do a few errands. I booked the Ajanta cave tour for the next day, and the Ellora tour for the day after.
