Bodh Gaya: exploring the local scene

Yesterday I visited the 80 foot statue of Buddha, various temples and explored some of the streets around the area. I met a couple local chaps who offered to give me a ride around the streets on their motorbike. I was able to visit some of the remote, inner neighborhoods that aren’t easily found or seen from the street. Tomorrow they are going to meet me again after I visit the Mahabodhi Temple and the Bodhi tree where Gautama Buddha was enlightened.  I finished the day with a delicious freshly made meal and a chai outside the hotel. Here is a slide show of some of the scenes I took in.
