The Chipsters have found their way to a bus that they're being told goes to the train station in Mumbai, where they can catch a train to get to where they need to go.
David and Jeff, BuffJon and Kelly, and Chuck and Millie make it onto a bus that's just leaving as they're climbing on, but Monica and Sheree have apparently lost the pack, because they're still asking for directions, unsure of what exactly they should do next. I've always thought this was actually the biggest risk of following other people -- it means you have no plan of your own, so if you get separated from them, you have no idea what to do. The Falconettes have, however, found themselves just across the road from a similarly trudging Al and Jon, who also didn't get on the bus.
Speaking of the bus, BuffJon gives the update that he and Kelly, Millie and Chuck, and David and Jeff have left Monica and Sheree and ClownJon and Al behind. "I hope we're going the right way," he says. Tian and Jaree, meanwhile, also grab a bus that's on the way by.
The Chipsters are the first to arrive at the Mumbai train station. As they prepare to board, they notice that there are guys literally hanging off the side of the train, it's so crowded. Reichen explains that in order to get on this particular train, you had to push and shove as hard as you could, because it's pretty much a solid wall of humanity inside the cars. They manage to...well, push and shove their way onto the train. The only thing I can think about during this scene is the poor camera guy, who has to push and shove himself and his equipment around. Those guys should get hazard pay. Or at least the occasional hazard beer.
Jon and Kelly and David and Jeff have shown up at the station, and when Kelly asks when the next train is, she's told it's within a few minutes, so she and her crowd prepare to board as well. Chuck and Millie somehow got separated from them between the bus and the train, because they're still asking directions and trying to figure out how to get to the train station. I would point out that as Kelly and Jon make their way to the platform to board the train, there are a number of women visible in the shot, so it's certainly not the case that women in India don't take trains, despite the way things look from later shots inside the cars. As the train pulls in, Kelly and Jon become aware of the incredible crowding as well, and though they run frantically from car to car looking for one that has space, they eventually wind up just watching the train pull out, having concluded that it was literally impossible to get on. Neither they nor David and Jeff make it onto the train. "That was interesting, huh?" David says as he and Jeff exchange a funny little "zoiks" smile. Hee. Yeah, they're definitely growing on me a little.
