Indian Trains

This photo doesn't really fit anywhere else, but I wanted to post it to show what an indian train is like:

Items to note are: The versatility of the sari (pod woman sleeping), the open-ness of the train car (no private cabins at all), the triple-stack facing accomodations (there is a second level that folds up above the pod woman, the gentlemen facing each other are in a higher class that is only a 2-stack), lots of blue vinyl, and tiffany's feet resting on the pod's bunk. It is not considered polite to put your feet on the floor because it is viewed as dirty.

I am happy to see you are enjoying India even though as you say, you experienced he dark side.

Take care and travel safe.
