Trains

...aaand I'm back! Back from a fabulous trip to Udaipur. It's been almost a month since I last Blogged, and surprisingly, I didn't miss it all that much. Sure, at several points I thought..'I can Blog about this', and during those moments I wasn't sure if I should be happy that I'd started to like Blogging all that much, worried that I was thinking about it too much, or if I shouldn't be bothered because my memory is pure patch-work anyway. Because now, I have no idea what I wanted to blog about. Really. I had around TEN posts in my head then, and here I am, rambling on about absolutely nothing on the very first one.

Udaipur was a trip we'd been planning for a while, us from class. CaffeineLover lives there, her house/palace is there. She goes back there everytime we get our measly holidays, and she's been dying for us to visit for ages! And so, after many (many many many. I cannot stress this enough) glitches, we still went. And boy, am I glad.

Sutta, Mommy, Ash, Giggles and me took the train up to Ahmedabad. It was amazing, to say the very least. We'd met this SUPER cute kid named Riddhima, and we played with her for quite some time. What was just way too adorable was that she was from Bombay and actually prefixed her sentences with "Abbe" or "Arre". Man, kids are cute! We also met another kid, and these two boys, Stud Macha A and B. (Lame lingo courtesy college in Karnataka- there's nothing quite like it! If you can't beat em, join em. Really.) One of the machas ended up being quite nice and playing everything - UNO, Bluff, Taboo, Antakshiri (how do you spell this, by the way?) Fast-quietly-keep-it-down (a must play) with us. The other one, Illegal, was on train without a ticket and was entertaining only for a very short while.

In short, trains are fun. I get the best sleep EVER On trains. I sleep great on moving vehicles, trains most of all. Rock-a-bye-me, on the train top berth. We played, ate, played some more. Fantastic, really. The flight back paled in comparion. Travel Tip- when in a fun group, always take trains..they are definitely the way to go!



Our very own Jamal and Latika at Pune Railway Station. Aren't they cute?
They were very keen on being photographed.

Me in a pensive train mood. (Yeah, right!)



India is gorgeous, in a way that can only be discovered by wandering around.

Coming up, a full post on Udaipur!
