A lazy day off from sightseeing in India, as I passed some time waiting to catch another train. During my train journey around India, I spent many nights sleeping overnight on the trains to maximise my travel time and budget!
Taking the train from Varanassi
Had a lazy breakfast and watched TV before checking out at noon. Settled my bill, and left my bag in their cloakroom whilst I sat out on the lawn reading, and planning the next few days. A Dutch couple turned up in a huge camper van that they had obviously driven over from Holland, but I never got a chance to chat to them.
At the train station, I had a long wait for the train. There was an ace announcement though..
‘The 22.20 Howrah train is running …. indefinitely …. late, and will arrive … later ‘
A reasonably entertaining wait, watching the odd rat put in a celebrity appearance, and of course the cows leaving huge dollops of poo all over the platform. Got talking to another Christian religious sort, who gave me a pamphlet, which was just as well, because I was running low on toilet paper.
