My first weekend I ventured into Kanpur city itself, which is an unfortunate 30-minute drive (traffic permitting) on one of the most congested and insane roads in India -- the Grand Trunk Road. The distance from the campus to the city itself is definitely a barrier for casual expeditions into the city. The students assure me that there is not much to see in the city, anyway, so most folks seem to hang around campus. This is a view of the Kanpur Central railway station.
