I had almost expected a sleeper train that stops in the night to be running a couple of hours late. It's an Indian Railways thing, I guess. I hope there will be a man at the station with a sign saying Mr Jones, to guide us past the taxi drivers who, even now, I know, are waiting to fleece us of Romanian currency we don't even have ...
