Trains (no planes) and Automobiles
After 26 hours of travel across India by train (21 hours) and a van ride from the plains up into the foothills of the Himalayas (six hours) we have arrived. The trip was relaxing, the trip was exhausting , the trip was full of cultural value. Two quick examples –
Demetri dancing in the train ilse wearing a turban while a large group of folks played traditional music from India singing and clapping encouragement.
