4 Hours on a Motorcycle (Saurath to Darbhanga)

Today I went on a scenic adventure from Saurath to the city of Darbhanga - about a 40 km distance - by bike.  Darbhanga is a larger city here in Bihar with a more active commercial sector.  Our goal was to search for suppliers with whom we can build a relationship for the women's shop, to ultimately reduce costs and improve the bottom line.  The following is what I saw along the way.

Note: I took these in motion, so the quality isn't the best.  But, words can only go so far, so hopefully these photos paint a better picture...

Signs for Computer & English classes are everywhere

Crowded streets of Darbhanga

Lots of detours due to road construction

Sparsely populated highway (many parts still under construction)
