We took a taxi from Shirdi and headed towards Ellora; halting for a while at Shani Shingnapur. The weather was cool and the journey was smooth! Me and my family enjoyed listening Hindi hits in Marathi language. The driver of taxi was a very nice and honest person. All in all, a very good and safe journey.
