Train to Agra. View of an Indian train. Breakfast in Agra before going to the Taj.

Photos from our overnight train from Udaipur to Agra.

It was a twelve hour ride but it wasn’t so bad compared the train we took later on in the day from Agra to Delhi (which featured a two hour delay, extreme confusion, paying our way onto the AC car, long stops at random railway stations, mice crawling around the floor, cockroaches everywhere…yes, and very smelly toilets).

Oh yeah, in case I forgot to mention this…when you go to the bathroom on the train…well, everything just goes down under the train through a small hole onto the train tracks. Very interesting place, this India.
