Annemarie and Andrew – Trekking Asia


This train is driving me crazy. The guy behind me keeps eating nuts, crunching between his teeth to crack open the shell, then the crunch of the nut.

When he eats nuts he spends maybe an hour crunching them. This is the fourth time he has done this! How does he have many nuts! And why! Why not eat a quick proper meal? This crunching is going make me go mad!

As well as this guy the guy on the bunk above me eats in the loudest possible manner. He slurps every sip of his drink, sucks the noodles and I think he eats food using his tongue to crush the food (all while his mouth is open). The noise he makes whilst eating is unbelievable.

The toilet is obviously a squat toilet, but the hole is full and won’t flush. To say it stinks is a gross understatement.

On a positive note, the scenery is good. And I have almost finished reading The Road, which I only started when I boarded the train yesterday evening. Plus we have now covered almost 8,000 miles overland.

    It certainly sounds like an experience! I wonder what they all thought about you and your weird western ways 🙂

    Sounds `nuts`.

    Seems to be a pretty frustrating journey so far, but it’ll all make for hysterical stories when you’re finished! #experience
