  4. ha! In India, I've seen many buses and even trucks that look like this, but this is teh first time I'm seeing a people-plastered train. My guess is that it was for an election of some sort. (They bribe the people from the villages with food or money and then haul them by the throngs to the voting booths, where they vote for the people who brought them there, by thumbprint or handprint--because they cannot read and write.)

  7. I don't think you quite understand Larry. When Terry says he is on the train on the way to your house, he forgot to mention he's bringing friends from the combox, a few hundered!!It's our annual day trip. Terry felt we could use a break, kinda to recharge yeh?

    Get the kettle on, it's been a long overnighter, we're all absolutely parched!

  9. you got immigration issues in Minneapolis or just extremely crowded public transit? What are you trying to convey here? Without more explanation I'm a bit lost for the meaning. Is this an inside joke for locals?
