Journal Entry:
Another day at the beach. I started off with a long breakfast then moved to the sand. Spent the morning, early afternoon reading and swimming. After I decided I was too sunburned I went for a long walk in the village. The village has a nice atmosphere - shady streets, and picturesque, fairly prosperous houses with large yards and lots of flowers. I stopped and checked my email, I had a little more luck today - the power didn't fail on me once. Spent the evening trying to figure out my travel plans beyond Mumbai (i.e. How to get to Katmandu). There are a couple things I'd like to see on my way - mainly Ellora and Ajanta Caves and the temple ruins at Khajusaho. The caves are very doable, but to get to Khajusaho is going to take some very long days and I don't know if I want to deal with that. Right now I'm tending towards either flying directly from Mumbai, or flying from Aurangabad after visiting Ellora and Ajanta.
