I was asking if Ceej meant that the "little cutouts" are what those parking spots are on the corners of those buildings.



Oh. Yes, those. We had some time to kill before our time to see Sagrada Familia, so we decided to hoof it from our hotel. Those stupid things were really annoying--no big deal for a couple of blocks, but when you are walking a few miles, they piss you off. Suppose the locals just get used to it.

I don't understand how they make you walk further.

Guess not. But, you know, straight lines and whatnot.

Maybe it's why Euros are skinnier than us straight line walking Americans.

Probably gets boring after awhile.
If you never try anything new, you'll miss out on many of life's great disappointments.

Nearly three thousand kilometers of railroad tracks crisscross the delta lowlands of Bangladesh, connecting the capital, Dhaka, with Chittagong to the southeast and Calcutta to the southwest. The system was built largely by the British and began operations in 1862, more than a hundred years before Bangladesh became an independent nation. Bangladeshi rolling stock now carries more than forty million passengers a year in three ticketed classes: air-conditioned, first, and second—and then there are the passengers who can’t pay. These riders, many of them daily commuters going to and from work, cling to handles, crouch in doorways, perch on the couplings between cars, and climb onto the roof. I live in Dhaka and began riding the rails with my camera in 2006. I wanted to draw attention to the danger the stowaways expose themselves to; gruesome accidents are routine for free riders. There is nothing to hold on to and it is very difficult to keep your footing. On a recent ride, I spoke to Majed Miya, a carpenter who has traveled on the roof for two decades. Miya said he enjoys riding on the roof: “no one really disturbs me there, except the fear of death.” "

the peeps inbetween the cars seem even crazier than sides or roof, that part continuously buckles and jerks up and down and side to side, especially on their rail system

Those people should drive to work in a Lamborghini. They lack grit.

Whoa. That is crazy. I wonder how long most of them ride it for daily?

And I thought NYC rush hour subways were bad.

I like the army guy clearing the way with a stick at the front of the train.
