The Raft of the Medusa

That's the closest i can think of to compare the 22 hours of "hard seat" train from Beijing to Lanzhou!
In every wagon there were enough people to fill one more! People everywhere.. on the floor, on the sink, in the bathroom, standing, sitting, laying, sleeping, from kids to grand mothers.. no way to move or sleep.. bit hardcore if you ask me!..
Hopped straight from the train to 6 hours by bus.. but i made it to Xiahe!.. and the dorm room gives on the beautiful tibetain monastery.. can't complain!
