Day 283

TRAIN TO AKHAURA and back!

The 1st train stopped near the Zia Airport station for 2 hours to do repairs.  We got to Akhaura at 12:45 then taking a CNG to the border.  We got the immigration process done, ate some dal, baji, rice and fish and then returned to the border.  Processed papers again and took the 30 minute rickshaw ride to the train.  Standing room tickets only so we only went to the first station and got off hoping either for a bus or another train with seats.  We spent part of the night at a guest house across from the station and then boarded the 3:30 am train which left at 4:20 am,  and put us into the Komlapur station in Dhaka at 7 am!  An interesting 25 1/2 hour trip.

We had some nice views in the country of the rice fields etc.  It was good to be back in the city.
