India: Overnight Train from Delhi to Varanasi






We took the Shiva Express from Delhi to Varanasi.  It departed Delhi at 6:55pm and was a 15 hour trip (including a 2 hour middle-of-the-night delay). 



We had a prviate 1st class cabin (which we made a fantastic mess of in under 30 minutes).


I slept for about 2 or 3 hours like this, hidden in my sleep sack on the top bunk.  


I spent the rest of the night sharing the tiny bottom bunk with my friend JS :)



TS enjoyed watching the Indian villages go by :)


A small Indian village through the window of our train cabin a couple of hours before we reached Varanasi.

This is a Generic Brand Video


An ad by a stock footage company made entirely from stock footage (and doing a great job of making fun of itself!)
