MAY 22, 15 .. BACK INTO NEW DELHI ..

As I like to say .. All is swell that ends well .. And I am safely back in New Delhi after the train trip up from Agra Cantt last night the 21st .

 

Below is the big picture of the two cities and Hong Kong to the East ..

 

How nice to see New Delhi and Agra Cantt and Hong Kong as they relate to one another ..

Below are a few random photographs taken in the Agra Cantt railway station and on the Shatabdi Express train.

Just typical scenes .. I discuss the train on the right edge of the below photo further down in this Post ..

AGRA TRAIN 003

A little closer view of the above scene ..

AGRA TRAIN 010

The below photos are of a mail train .. A term for a train that stops at many locations to drop and to pick up mail ..

AGRA TRAIN 011

There is always a lot-of-action around the trains ..

AGRA TRAIN 005

AGRA TRAIN 004

Below are a few photos of a premier train .. One of the finest in India .. The New Delhi to Bombay (Mumbai) Rajdhani Express ..

AGRA TRAIN 002

AGRA TRAIN 006

AGRA TRAIN 007

AGRA TRAIN 008

There she goes .. Off into the night .. Racing for Bombay (Mumbai) ..

AGRA TRAIN 009

And now for two photos inside of my train .. The Shatabdi Express .. Which is also one of India’s premier trains ..

AGRA TRAIN 013

My major suitcase is directly ahead in the overhead rack .. The black suitcase with the yellow tape on its handle to help me find him in airport luggage carousels ..

AGRA TRAIN 012

The three young men at the bottom of the photo kindly lifted my bag up into the overhead luggage rack. The closest lad is from Japan and the other two from Holland. I got to know them during the trip because I gave my seat so they could sit together. In return for my kindness .. Unknowingly .. I got a window seat with an empty seat beside me. Shows To Go You .. To Feel Good .. Do Good!

It is supposed to hit 105 Degrees today in New Dehhi.

Smiles .. Cap ..

Oh my little sweetheart! My heart too is broken because the man you were trying to attract to you just stood-you-up and said .. “Not Interested!”

AGRA TRAIN 001

Never in my life had I ever seen the mating dance between lizards. She (since she was far smaller than her would be suitor) just twitched her tail from side-to-side over-and-over-and-over again .. Even I got-it .. She was in HEAT and I mean in HEAT!

Jeevan and I watched the two of them for over an hour. It was fascinating. Absolutely and utterly fascinating. They just looked at each other for the longest time .. Neither moving .. Then she began her tail twitching. He finally came over to her .. And they just looked at each other .. She was just twitching her tail .. Finally he left.

My heart was broken for her! My flash photo did not frighten her at all.

Jeevan talking with Patti in Alaska .. Amazing .. Absolutely Positively Amazing!!

JEEVAN 004

That is my green Nokia Smart Phone in Jeevan’s hand ..

DO YOU ALL GET IT! I AM IN NEW DELHI POSTING PHOTOS! THANKS TO CHANDRA IN AGRA CANTT WHO TAUGHT ME HOW TO DO THIS!!

While I was down in Agra Cantt .. Chandra the computer genius there IN Agra Cantt is so computer brilliant .. He taught me how to get photos posted up here in New Delhi!

WOW! THANKS CHANDRA!

    It IS nice to see, on the map, the relationship of New Delhi and Agra Cantt to Hong Kong. Love these maps!! The railway stations (this one in Agra) are a scene of their own…always fascinating. Good on the three young men for helping you put your bag overhead and for all four of you shuffling seats to the benefit of all of you.

    The mating dance of the lizards must have been entrancing…life, in all of its many manifestations is magical!

    And, I LOVED the smiling Jeevan, caught on camera speaking to me!!! Love, Patti

      Andrej’s map(s) are the best thing since sliced bread aren’t they. Now you see from the distance between New Delhi and Hong Kong the ensuing time zone difference. It is quite a distance isn’t it? The young travelers were a great help! They also watched my things when I went to the restroom. A great meeting between us. Oh the scenes in the railway stations. As I wrote .. I felt bad for the little female lizard who was dismissed by the male. Had I known the flash would not disturb them I would have snapped more photos BUT if I would have .. then I would have thought to myself .. “That was a mistake.” .. So I am glad I let them just be.

      Good shot of Jeevan talking to you. Much Love .. Cap ..

    I love the photo of Jeevan talking to Patti on the phone. He’s certainly enjoying their conversation.

    You are so compassionate, so much so that you feel bad for a dismissed lizard. Bless your heart.
