A long day in Delhi

We decided to be at the hotel as much as possible....After checkout, we took an autorickshaw to the government shopping emporiums, which we really enjoyed.
We had our last fantastic meal at the hotel (we really couldn't get enough of their Indian cuisine) and headed to the Old Delhi train station. The station was pretty crowded and the most difficult thing for us was trying to figure out which of the sea of platforms our train was going to depart from. We eventually just asked someone at the help desk since none of signs that we saw were in English. We passed the time by playing cards and after about 2 hours we were happy to get on board in the 2nd class, with AC (which turned out to be a fan-but it got the job done!). There was another young couple and a small family sharing our sleeping area so we felt very comfortable. By then it was around 10:00 pm, so off to sleep in our bunks we went, Larry with his legs wrapped up in his pack like a burrito and me using mine as a pillow (since we didn't buy any locks)...anxiously awaiting our arrival in Pathankot in the morning.
