25th May (Friday) :
I was just less than an hour in Abu Road !
I had to reach here simply because I could take a bus connection to Mount Abu.
Virtual Tourist anyhow doesn't list a place called Mount Abu.
Too bad 'cos it's one of the most hilly places in India where the locals & the tourists love to go !
Me, I met the Jesus couple there !
In Mount Abu !
I arrived at Abu Road station at about 10 am.
Took the train, originally started in Junagadh, departed the previous night at 9.05 pm.
I was so tired in Junagadh as I had climb 10,000 steps to the top of Girnar Hill !
There's even a layover in Ahmadabd, that was 4 am (on Friday).
Departed again for Abu Road station at 5.45 am !
Nobody travels like I do !
So, it's like almost a 12 hours train journey from Junagadh to Abu Road.
I was still very much tired.
My legs actually.
I am always not a climber.
So, up Girnar Hill was a feat that I would never ever forget.
Anyway, reaching Abu Road station, just a small station.
I quickly dashed out from the station.
Tried to avoid the touts.
I asked a few people on how to catch a bus to Mount Abu.
Most of them said, look for Ambaji temple.
The bus stop should be next to it.
Found the temple, found the bus station.
Asked again, which bus went to Mount Abu.
Waited for about 5 minutes.
The bus came.
Everybody came running to that bus.
Like a moshpit !
Me, dragging my luggage, found my way in.
I should really add here.
That for me to manage to get on the bus was no easy feat !
Some kids were stepped on by me !
Some women had to take off their sarees as for me not to pull them.
Some men were punched hard by me !
I didn't do all these !
But to that effect !
So, I was on the bus.
Got a seat even.
Everybody was just calm, talking, laughing...
I thought, okay.
Until, somebody asked me, "Do you have a ticket ?"
I said what ticket ?
I could buy it on the bus, no ?
I had to get down on the bus, left my luggage behind.
Asked somebody to look after it for a few minutes.
I just wanted to buy the bus ticket.
Went to a counter.
Was told that I could only buy the ticket for the next bus to Mount Abu !
Went to my bus & asked the person to hand down my luggage through the window.
It's not a big luggage anyway.
No system at all !
I thought ticket could be purchased on the bus.
Not the case at this station...
Bought the bus ticket.
15 minutes later, the next bus came.
I got my ticket, so there's nothing could be wrong this time.
