Zonal Informatics Olympiad….And Aching Feet

Went for the Zonal Informatics Olympiad. It was held in Kolkata. Means had to take an early morn train. The teach who went with us was..How should I put it?…A Nincompoop!!!!! First He’s really nervous.(He’s new you see) We got into the train and reached Howrah at right time(8:45 AM) we told him to take a ferry and cross the river and take a taxi from the other side. But No…He WILL take a prepaid taxi from the station. Net Result: Got stuck coming out of Howrah station and going to Rabindra Setu. The Traffic there literally crawls. Add some really “interesting” odours and you have a bad time. It took us half an hour just to cross Howrah Bridge. Reached Venue(Park Street) a bit late. Went to give the exam. Was all right. Questions were a bit wierd. But all right. Exam over at 1:00. This guy want to take a train called Shaktipunj which leaves Howrah at 2:15 P.M. We reached Howrah at 1;50 P.M. and suggested that we go by Coalfield Exp. No. Pack Something to eat from the Food Plaza and go to the platform. It being a Long Dist train and since we didn’t have Sleeper class tickets. had to get into general. God Almighty .No place to sit, no place to stand properly. Had to stand all squashed up for 3 Hours. My poor Aching feet. We were all cursing the guy pretty frequently all through the journey. Oh. and We had to pay for our tickets.
