🙂 The open windows and doors to hang out of – 3rd class is the ONLY way to travel!
🙁 The last two stops got very crowded.
Ranjan had kindly pre-purchased our 3rd class tickets for us in advance so we passed effortlessly through the barrier and waited about an hour for the train which is always notoriously late. There is a reason for purchasing 3rd class tickets and that is so that you can feel the wind in your hair from the open windows and while sitting in the open doorways o the train watching the beautiful scenery go by – exhilarating! Charlotte took the opportunity to get some work done. Sweet tea and snacks are offered on sale. The snacks are savoury donuts called ULUNDU VADAI (MEDU VADA). SUCH fun! The time whizzed by and the train only got really full and a little uncomfortable at our final two stops (rush hour!). I will let the photos do the talking!
