After half an hour of waiting, the train load of people, both inside and outside, is allocated to the next village.. Latecomers try to climb on the train in some way.
For the commuters, the train station is almost like a second home. So much time spent here running to catch the train or the metro, or waiting patiently the next one. So much life here, so many encounters, but the only thing that matters is the time.
One shot on the train from Varkala to Kanyakumari: the Sleeper Class. Fortunately not very crowded, as it often happens in India. So, as a first experience of an Indian train wasn't bad. Ok, there are some cockroach around, but think of them as fellow travelers.
Metropolitan commuters in Tokyo. Persons that probably meet each others everyday on the way to work.. but perhaps never had a tiny conversation. So close but so far.
Don't worry, there is space for everyone! The trains in Bangladesh are famous to be very crowded. The people can sit everywhere... if inside is totally full, there is still the roof. I guess the problem comes when it rains.
One shot taken on the streets of Colombo .. An ordinary woman, an ordinary day, the thoughts of the daily life, while waiting to return home after a day of work.
The bus in Bangladesh are not very easy to catch. First of all find the right one is more than an issue because not so many people can speak english and all the writings are in Bangla language. Once you find the right bus, the possible scene that you will withness is what you see on the picture.
What about the bus in Sri Lanka .... simply Crazy! Criminals provided to public transport.. I have never seen such a thing, really.. The explanation is simple: they are paid according to how many people they charge during the day.
The train station of Dhaka is always busy and populated. The trains of Bangladesh are quite known to be.. a bit crazy.. always in late and super crowded.
Who knows Bangladesh? How many of you ever thought to come here? Look, to be honest I’ve never thought about that before. I really didn’t know this Country and i had never considered to come here. I heard about Bangladesh the first time, just in India from a German man that suggested me to visit this place: a Country with a small tourism and a super hospitality.
