We, finally, got on the train.. found our bed.. settled down.. and felt the new trip will come again soon.. We slept, wrote note, read books, etc.. and mostly, we both were so excited to going to the coming destination, Vanarasi..
And, unbelivably, we MISSED the station.. we took 400 km more for one way in Chhapar.. we were lucky that when the moment we found missed the station and wanna got out the train at once.. 6 nice Indian people looked at us and wondered why we were so nervious.. then gave us the best advice "don't get off here, this station is small, you won't get the train to Varanasi, you should go to Chhapar, and you can get the train to Vanarasi in about an hour.. that will be the best way" Thanks God.
When we arrived Chhapar.. Janice felt hungery and bought some local food.. turn out it is the only memory of my Northest India trip.. ha.. Anyway, we, finally, got on the train heading to Vanarasi.. we decided not buying tickets again.. the Captain heard how poor we were when we chatted with other passangers.. he didn't insist we must buy ticket, in fact, he came back later when we almost reach there.. how thoughtful.. I think for him maybe it's fun to see 2 foreigne girls kept asking "please advice me when we arrive Vanarasi" in Hindi with funny accent .. haha..
So what did I do at the 7th days in India? 24 hours train trip.. hahah..
