Next Day
If you can pronounce it - Bhubaneswar - then you can order tickets and reach it. We came because our train stopped there. It's a famous place if you're a devout Hindu or if you were born nearby. Otherwise, Bhubaneswar is just a city with a strange name. It stands as the capital of the Orissa state. People speak Oriya but it all sounds like Hindi to us. Many local temples have gained national prominence but since we've had enough of temples we went tiger hunting at the zoo.
This tiger stalked zoo watchers near the fence.
Turn the other way and he'll pounce!
The cats in this zoo surprised us. They were all awake and active.
Best picture we've taken of a leopard - we had to visit a zoo to get it.
