Night Train to Agra

So just another quick update today as we’re still in Varanasi waiting now until its time for us to be picked up and taken to the railway station for our overnight train to Agra. We’ve had a relaxed day today walking the ghats and the streets of Varanasi. It’s been the hottest day so far today certainly up in the 80s so it was interesting to read that there’s been snow back home!
We took a tuk tuk ride to the Brown Bread bakery which we’d been told was v good on Trip Advisor again. The driver started taking us down the back alleys and we’d also heard that this is a favourite scam of the old muggers of Varanasi so we made him take us back to the main road and went instead to the Bread of Life cafe. It was a good place and we had nice bread, soup, Chinese etc . The chocolate cheesecake here was freshly made and v yummy.
So……next stop the overnight train. It should be an interesting experience although the nice American couple we met in the hotel told us to really lower our expectations. They weren’t that high to start with!
So next update from Agra as I suspect there won’t be any Wifi on the train. Do you think that’s what they meant by lowering our expectations?
