The long haul South

From Corbett we begun the long journey South to Goa. Starting with an afternoon in the transport hub town for Corbett- Ramnagar, then an overnight train down to Delhi, a quick train down to Agra to tick off the Taj Mahal, then another train on to Ranthmabhore NP, all in the same day.

JP showing a total lack of respect at one of the seven wonders of the world. Note: we didnt have the time (or the money) to take a tour inside the Taj complex, so we opted for a quick look and some record shots from the opposite bank of the river

Nilgai Antelope. When this thing bolted out of the scrub in front of us we didnt have a clue what it was. Some wierd combination of horse/deer/giraffe! A true "what the fuck is that!!!" moment
