The Train

Avoiding Pain on the Train

Day 303

TK&A scheduled the group to ride on the train, it was an all night ride leaving at 10 p.m. After sitting on a bus for 12 hours the day before, I decided more torture was not in my future.

In retrospect, reading and hearing about the horrors of “the train” I was convinced I made the right decision. The train was a hard seated NON sleeper, instead of taking 12 hours, TK&A scheduled the group on a “local” train that took 17 hours! I felt sorry for my friends who had no choice but to suffer through the experience.
