Where I stayed
Found my berth on the train and settled in to sleep. This is definitely not the blue train. There are no compartments, just rows of bunks. The bunks are thinly padded and 3 high. I was on the bottom bunk and all the others were full. It is noisy, dusty and smelly. I stuff my ears with my earplugs (an essential when traveling ) and then pull my buff completely over my head and face
and to make it worse I had large 'morning glory' bulging in my pants.
It was a long hot day on train. The train stopping all the time so definitely not the express. The Indian landscape is generally quite flat and not very inspiring. Passed through mostly small agricultural regions with sugar cane, maize,and potatoes. Lots of little shanty homes and villages.
Arrived in Nagpur and caught my first bicycle rickshaw into town. Why is it that bicycle rickshaw drivers have the skinniest legs in the world?
