In Orchha

Standard

we caught the train from agra to jhansi this morning, instead of sitting in first class with air con, we went with the seated but unairconditioned car. This was great at first, I could see out the windows and interact with local folk. Then it just got too dang hot (it nears 40C). A bone rattling rickshaw ride after arriving in jhansi, we arrived in Orchha, a little town in the state of Madhya Pradesh, with gorgeous forts and palaces, cows insouciantly roaming the streets, and men who look like gurus wandering around. More of it tomorrow….
