ah yes.. AH YES.. here we are within Sealdah Railway Station in Calcutta.. and THIS MY FRIENDS is what you will face when you are told to go to (jail) .. only kidding .. I can't imagine a Calcutta jail .. this is what you face when you have to go to a local BOOKING COUNTER.. it is bad.. you wait and you wait.. and you just wait some more.. THIS AIN'T FOR THE FAINT O' HEART BELIEVE ME..
The backpackers LOOK DOWN UPON THE TOURISTS who will ' pay ' money to local ' touts ' to do "this waiting in line" for them.. I have.. so far .. NEVER EVER used a ' tout ' to do what I needed to do.. NOR do I ever plan to do so.. for one thing.. I WANT TO KNOW I GET WHAT I WANT AND WHAT I AM PAYING FOR.. only by doing this ones self do you KNOW..
