The First Step into the Holy Land

We took the sleeper coach from Delhi to Varanasi and boy, were we glad we took the first class coach... Imagine, the same coach of 4 cabins (4 person to each cabin) in first class fits hundreds of passengers crammed in the 3rd and 4th class!!! Some even had to be pushed in for lack of space....

A luxury for us, I know...
