... I have come into contact with will forever remain in my heart along with other unforgettable memories from this trip. Later today (tomorrow...you'll see) The things that have happened on this trip are beyond me. So on the train ride the guy who sat next to me (mid 40s maybe) was on his phone almost the entire time.
