I made a mistake!

I should have gone straight to Aurangabad by an overnight train from Agra instead of going to Mumbai and catching another train to Aurangabad. As a result, I ended up spending a night in Mumbai yesterday and was taking a local train this morning to Aurangabad where Ellora and Ajanta cave-temples are located nearby.

I've been carrying my surfboard all the way simply because I'm going to surf in Kerala, southwest of India in a couple of weeks, but carrying this coffin in India hasn't been easy at all. So I decided to leave my burden behind for now by paying a bit at the cloak room in Mumbai Central Station.

Feeling very light without my bulky surfboard-bag, I hopped on to a local train and headed to Aurangabad around 6:30am.

The scenery out of the window was greenish and surprisingly beautiful as shown in the photos below. It almost made me think "Is this really India?"

I was enjoying this rusty local train with noisy fans attached on the ceiling up until Aurangabad, but things turned completely upside down when the train reached Aurangabad.
A lot of passengers including myself were about to get off the train when new passengers flooded in without waiting for us to get off first. They were so aggressively pushing each other and extremely mad about securing seats for themselves. I saw water-bottles flying, a couple of babies crying and a few angry passengers shouting hysterically.... So chaotic and such a mess!

My pleasant train-ride was all shattered in the end by those unmannered Indian people.

But hang on! This is India. What am I expecting from these Indian people? Manners???


!!!!! Note !!!!!
Hotel Shree Maya located within walking distance from the railway-station is where I'm staying with a young dread-hair Swedish boy called Gillis.
It's INR200 for a 6-people dorm. The cheapest hotel ever since I came to India, though the quality of the room and the bathroom is really "you get what you pay for".
