Travel Adventures: New Delhi to Varanasi Train

by a traveller

In the middle of the night a woman tried to join my girl friend in
her bed.

"By far the worst sleeping/traveling story I have, after traveling around the globe, is when my girl friend and I made the mistake of getting a 2nd class sleeper from New Delhi to Varanasi, India. Pure Hell. Beside the rank odor and the disgustingly dirty "beds", we really never managed to sleep because of being constantly bothered. In the middle of the night a woman tried to join my girl friend in her bed, and at one point a thief from outside the train tried to reach in through the metal barred windows and make off with what he could. He was caught, but he then grabbed a hold of the sleepy passenger by the collar as the train started off, both screaming at each other. We felt like we were on a cattle train. Another winner is trying to sleep on any bus in India. Just suck it up and figure your just not going to get a wink. "

Be prepared for some intense "stink eye" from non-airport sleepers if you take up too much space at busy gate areas.
