Train Adventures in India!


On my first journey I went to Trivandrum, in the neighboring state of Kerala. My journey started at this train station.
The trip took 16 hours, so we rode in a sleeper car train. Sleeper class is pretty basic and crowded.
I was traveling with some fellow students- here you can see some of them squished on the train seat.
Sleeper class cars have 8 sleeping berths per car. During the day people sit everywhere.
I got to see a lot of the Indian countryside during my train ride.
 l took lots of selfies during my ride!
Since it was an overnight trip the train sold dinner- I had vegetable biryani (a dish made of vegetables mixed into rice).
Here are all my labmates having fun on the train!
