Our Five day and four night stay at various places in Kerala had to conclude with a pathetic train ride. My bookings of AC coach had to be on a waiting even for the last moment. So I canceled them, to get my money back. As a backup I had already booked two confirmed seats on normal sleeper coach of the same train.
To our surprise when Zi and I reached to the Allepy railway station, we found that our AC compartment seats were also confirmed. Now we had four seats, two for each, one in an Air-conditioned bogey and one in a normal coach. Being a God-fearing person I decided to travel normal class as we had already cancelled our AC sleeper coach tickets.
And travelling all the way from Kerala to my city in this coach was the worst part of our entire adventure. I m not so used of travelling long distance in a train, and here it was to spend almost 18 hours in a moving metal. Cleanliness was absent, and that was the most disgusting part of it. I saw a mouse, couple of cockroaches and dirt everywhere. I prayed that we should get off this train as early as possible.
Despite all this, I did manage to photograph. I woke up very early, by then we were reaching Goa state. I felt very fresh, and inspired watching the sunrise. I took many shots way till afternoon.
