On the road to Mahabalipuram, March, 1994. I leaned out of an autorickshaw door to snap this photo.

We’d just completed a 48 hour train journey down the east coast from Orissa to Madras, and my girlfriend and I had balked at the price of taxis for the 1 hour drive to Mahabalipuram. So we took an auto instead. They’re a bit bumpy at speed for inter-city travel, but when you’re budget travelling you tend to haggle over the few pence you wouldn’t think twice about when you’re back home.
