India: Aurangabad

Ian in front of the caves at Ajanta
Aurangabad might have been a little odd, but it did have a positive side; in the Youth Hostel I met Ian, who proved excellent company with whom to explore the magnificent caves at Ajanta

It was a long transit day on the bus north from Bijapur to Aurangabad, where I'd originally planned to stay for three nights. I thoroughly enjoyed exploring the sights around the city – such as the wonderful caves at Ellora and Ajanta, and the atmospheric fort at Daultabad – but in the end I was happy to move on after just two nights.
