Today I woke up a little bit later and missed my free breakfast, not that I missed a lot. Toast. I then got a cab and headed to the zoo which was a bad idea. I didn't realise it was India's Independence Day.The zoo was absolutely packed with all generations of the family. Because I had to check out of the hotel I had to carry both my backpacks around which was a chore. I didn't realise how much stuff I packed as it was the first time I'd had to walk a distance with the both on. Still though, it might give me some back muscles that are non existent at the minute. I attempted to get close to the enclosures to get some nice pictures but when your getting shoved left, right and centre your not really in the mood. Plus the enclosures were very small and not in a good way so I didn't fancy looking. I strolled leisurely round the zoo with every single person looking at me as I did so. I stopped to tie my shoe laces when a gay couple came up and started flirting. I didn't know if they were taking the piss or being serious so I just went along with it as you do. I must just have that Graham Norton look about me. I carried on walking before a couple of people stopped me for pictures. I was like here we go again, I'm gonna be stuck here all day and miss me train! Luckily it was just this couple that asked. I sat down for a little while to let the manic rush of people leaving the zoo die down. I finally left and when I did I couldn't get a taxi anywhere. I was like "s***.. I'm gonna have to walk 3 miles or more with these back packs. I started walking and luckily after about a mile and a half I flagged one down. This was after leaping behind a tree for a wee like everyone does here. I went back to the hotel for a bit of food before going to the train station. I found the platform, train and my bed with ease. I was thinking it was to good to be true, but it was that simple. I settled myself in for the 16 hour overnight train to Varanasi. I was watching a film on my iPad before slowly falling to sleep. The train did smell a bit and I didn't feel entirely safe at all time but it was a good experience to have.
