Setting the wheel in motion

We took a small side trip yesterday (from Varanasi about 11km) to go see the site of Sarnath. This is where the Buddha gave his first Dharma talk after becoming enlightened. Although mostly in ruins now, it was still fascinating to walk where the Buddha walked over two millennia ago and contemplate his teachings. Outside of numerous child touts, it is a generally peaceful and inspiring place.

Olaf and I take the overnight train to Orchha tonight (well Jhansi really, then car to Orchha).
