More Rock Holes

IMG_2200[msn:Ellora]. Další jeskyně. Tentokráte jsou tu i hinduistické a džinistické. Moc maluvek na zdech neni, ale tady jde predevsim o architekturu. A opravdu to stoji za to. Muj uzas byl jeste nemejsi, nez v Ajante. Teda vlastne ani ne. Rikal jsem asi pet minut: „Ty vole!“

IMG_2200[msn:Ellora]. More caves. This time including Hinduist and Jainist. The walls do not abound in paintings, but architecture is what rules here. And it really is something. I was even more struck dumb in astonisment than in Ajanta. Well, not fully, since I was repeating for about five minutes:“Holy cow!“

IMG_2200[msn:Ellora]. 有更多石窟。这次包括耆那教的和印度教的。石窟里没有很多画,不过它们的建筑比较重要的。我被它们十分激动着说:“天啊!“

Davova speleologie (Mass Speleology)

aneb Vejde se sto tisic Indu do jeskyne?
IMG_1820

Do jedne asi ne, ale do triceti urcite. Alespon to tvrdili hlidaci parkoviste u Ajanty. 24.12. pry navstivil jeskyne jeden lakh turistu. Pro mene zbehle v indickem poctarstvi, lakh je sto tisic, „one crore“ znamena deset milionu.

 

or Can 100K Indians cram into a cave?

Not into one, pressumably, but thirty would go. At least according to the parking lot staff at Ajanta. One lakh tourists visited that place on Christmas day. For those not too familiar with Indian figures, lakh is 100,000, a crore means 10 million.

或一个石窟能下多少印度人?

一个石窟不行,不过三十个可以。按照Ajanta/阿旖陀 名胜公园,圣诞节时十万旅游者参观这个地方!

Quiz – Soutez

IMG_2954Aby se mili ctenari nenudili, je tu soutez. Prvni a asi i posledni. Prvni, kdo uhodne, co je neobvykleho na obrazku vpravo, dostane pohled. Nebo mu/ji poslu/privezu neco pekneho z Indie nebo ze Zelandu.

 

To keep dear reader from boredom, we have a little quiz here. The first, perhaps the last as well. The first to guess what is weird about the picture on the right will get a postcard or something lovely I`ll bring/send from India or New Zealand.
