Pushkar...getting there

The third place we visited during our 10-day holiday was Pushkar. Ever since touching down in India and hearing about the Pushkar Camel Fair two years and three months ago, I have wanted to go. Our first two years, I felt Arthur was a bit young to do or enjoy this type of trip. But, this year I informed the family that we were going (whether they wanted to or not!). My good friend, Sofie, and I started planning. She booked the hotel and I booked the train tickets. Then...we were off! Since the Pushkar trip was so rich, I will spread it out over several posts. This one is just our trip getting there by train (our first train in India!).

On the way there we were in A/C first class but on the way back we were in A/C chair car. The only real difference besides the ticket price was that the chairs in first class were bigger. Otherwise, both sections were nice. And, the service was amazing--snacks, meals (although we brought our own food), drinks and even ice cream. My favorite was this cup we got with our bottle of water:
