The Golden Chariot is a private train tun by the government of the Indian state of Karnataka. We initially landed in Delhi and took a flight to Bangalore about two and a half hours south. We marshaled at a hotel and bussed all fifty passengers to the train. We were met with a flower petal strewn red carpet with local Indian band playing. It was so much fun and surprising. I loved the band. We boarded the train, found our car, unpacked, and went to bar. This was an amazing start to an amazing trip.
