Mark’s Travel Diary

Location: Chennai - Calcutta, India

MapI returned to Chennai after taking another look at the stone carved temples - which were pretty special. Chennai was a bustling metropolis - Indian style - and to be honest I was just glad to get to the station. Here began my monumental 33 hour train journey. The sleeper trains in India are not bad at all, but over such a long period they do get a tad uncomfy. People selling all sorts of weird and wonderful things get on between stations so you never go hungry or thirsty. I was reading Dan Brown's Angels and Demons - this has to be the most farsical book on the planet and is the worst book I've ever read by quite a distance.
