I have one not so fond memory of riding an overnight (like 10 hour) train to Udaipur, India and let me tell yall… these trains are not like American trains. I wish I could explain this better, but picture a moving train that is so packed that people are literally hanging out of all the openings of the train. We purchased a ticket for a “bed” that folds down from the wall because it was going to be overnight, but not every passenger was using the train to get to Udaipur… so not every passenger had their own bed. There were no seats on this train… only beds… so basically your bed was shared with 4 other people until about 2 a.m. until mostly anyone not going to Udaipur had finally gotten off. Once I finally fell asleep I woke up a couple of hours later and someone was sitting on the edge of my bed. CREEPY!
One funny thing about India though is that there were literally monkeys everywhere. Since the orphanage we stayed at was open to the outdoors, we would sometimes have monkey visitors outside of our bedrooms. You knew there were monkeys close by if you heard girls screaming and slamming their doors. Haha! Going to India probably wasn’t my favorite, but it was still incredibly eye opening and I’m so glad I was able to see a new part of the world I’d never been to!
