Retreat! - On the Way Home

On our last day we woke up a little earlier than normal, had breakfast and then got everything ready to head to the train station :)
Right before we left, the mountain across from us was covered with mountain goats! It was cool!
We had to rush to the train station and we thought we were going to miss our train, but we made it! During the train ride I took a few pictures out of the door (if you haven't ridden a train here before - you can totally open the doors in between cars and hang out and take pictures and whatever else you want to do!). Anyway, you get so see some fun things if you do that, so I took some pictures. I think this village looks really cool :)
The lighting was pretty crazy in this picture - I thought it was really interesting.
These guys wanted to cross the street but had to wait for our train to pass....
At one point we decided that it would be a good nap time. Diya was a little too excited to nap - haha!
Our train stopped at the last stop before the Capital and we were thinking we were going to make it to the Capital on time!.... little did we know that we would sit at that train station for about 4 hours! We spent a lot of time at this train station!
Diya was still trying to sleep, but she had too much entertainment... here is our DJ seatmate with Diya :) haha! He was called DJ Virus :)
Finally we started going again :) yay! Here's some people making poop patties. Many people use this for fuel.
A lady selling guavas by the train.
Some guys selling peanuts by the train.
Aashini trying to take a nap :) She watched an episode of Dora before going to sleep :)
Aashini and her new buddies playing on someone's iphone to pass the time.
After a 30 minute taxi ride, an 9 hour train ride and an hour taxi ride - we made it home!

Ohhhh that 4 hour stop sounds miserable. I'm so inspired you can stay positive!
