Journey to West Bengal

Just Before Yesterday we had arrived to small town called Santiniketan.


It took us 2 days to get there. 4th January 11am we left our Guest House in Bodh Gaya and we went to Gaya train station. Our train to Barddhaman was suppose to arrive at 9pm. Before it we decided to eat something and take little rest. Sadly when time came they had announced that our train will be late, and it came after 9 hours! So we had time till 6am.

In the end I counted that we were on train station for 16 hours! And the journey was suppose to take 6 hours but it took 9. We met there and got friendly with one big family.

Finally 3pm we got to Barddhaman and 4pm we went into another train to Shantiniketan. It took us 2 and half hour to get there. We met there one girl that offered us a nice apartment. We got into rikshaw and got to our new house.

We are renting here an apartment with a good price. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, one kitchen, one living room and big garden for my sisters to play.

It was already 7pm when we arrived to our apartment. After we started deciding what else we have to buy. At 7:30pm I went to cafe with owners of house, our new frends. We started by walking and after we got some rikshaw. On the way there my new friend told me that there is Deer Park, where early in the morning you can find deers. And there was also Meditation Room made fully of glass, it was opened on Wednesdays 6am.

When we got to the cafe, I was surprised because there was also University. The cafe was mostly visited by students so the prices were very low. We ordered some food home and some chicken with tea. It was really delicious. After we got ordered food, we went back home by rickshaw.

At home everyone were already full because my mom made rice with eggs. So all food was left for us. After dinner we were playing cards and taking rest by watching movies. We went to sleep 11pm.
