Riding the Bus in India

Jan 26, 2009 by

We took a public bus for the 5-hour trip to Madurai. Luckily for us, we started with a fresh bus for the trip (which meant we got seats). Many are not so lucky and stand for some or all of the ride. Here is the bus station where we began. For some reason, bus stations and train stations seem particularly bad for piles of trash and the smell.

Many of the buses (honestly, most of the buses) are decorated with all manner of airbrushing, flowers, patterns, etc.

It’s also a good opportunity to take photos of Indians engaged in their daily life.
