On our way back to Nepal via the state of Bihar on a sleeper carriage. We had loads of sights to see. Amongst it was a line of vendors boarding the train at a station for 20 minutes whiles awaiting signal, was this man selling two types of peanuts, flavored and plain.
Some other vendor carried fresh pea fried, comic books, boiled eggs, sweets, etc, but alas, none carried any water! We were desperate for water!
Moral of this story, carry plenty of mineral water with you if you choose to travel on these long train rides. We ran out!
On our travel around the various temples in nooks and corner of Varanasi city, in India, this was one of the most common sight: a cow/calf/bull in even the smallest of small alleys.
Grandma’s joke: you’ll see everything in Indian streets, from people, cows and stray dogs, rubbish and such, and to add to the crowd that throng even the smallest of Varanasi’s infamously small alleyways, you’ll continuously hear the toot-tooting horns of motorbikes and scooters will disturb your walk. (It was an observation I guess, but it sounded funny when she said it.)
