    10/19/03 Took train into city -2nd class quite an experience. Crowded even on Sunday but we had seats -some guys always standing in the doorways making it look more cramped than it really is. Little kids on train come up and stand silently with a hand on your knee, waiting for a coin.  Finally give up and move on to next prospect.  Getting off the train reminiscent of Greek ferries no announcements on train and stops are short, so you have to be ready, and when train does stop, the crowd outside doesn't make way. It's a grand press to try to get off with all accoudrements, while new folks are pressing inwards.

    About 1 hr to get into town, less coming back by express.

    Took first class tix today -main difference seems to be a slightly better dress code, and somewhat less crowding, but still mostly standees. Left about 11, returned about 6. Spent much of the day in taxis -30-45 minutes, but fare stayed at 40-60 R. Got off at Mahalaxmi station, riding in with suburban commuters, tiffin wallahs on the platforms already

    10/22/03  ....Audrey gets in the Ladies car again, as train was already starting to pull away,  I pushed into nearest open door, only to realize it was second class. Luckily it was an express - counted over 250 people in that one car, 50 in the central standing section alone, several hanging out the door and just grabbing the overhang.  Finally squirmed to a place near seats so I only had 3 people pressing right against me.  Hoped I remembered the sequence of stations [at one station, just heard "Dadar! Dadar! Dadar! but usually couldn't see the station signs.]  As we approached Andheri, I started to make my move back into the press -no way anyone could have fallen.  At the station it was a rugby scrum, the first wave surged off the train; I almost made it, but then got hit with the counterattack from incoming patrons.  A few more pushes and I squirted onto the platform, arms flailing behind me, camera case still attached.
