Train Adventures


The young boy in the photo is standing on the window sill of the ladies compartment window and holding on tight. And the train wasn't very crowded but he was doing this for thrill. I'm speechless.

  1. I heard that windows of all trains in India are barred. Is it true? --- About the photo: what happens if train meet another coming in opposite direction?

  4. that's awesome!! I would so love to do that! I recently went to Guatemala, and the bus we toured around in had railings on top (for luggage, usually, but sometimes people). I begged and begged our driver to let me ride on top, but he never did let me.
