... only sources of income. The trek was absolutely gorgeous. Chickens and pigs ran amok throughout the many trails. Little children in tattered clothing found ways to have fun while their parents were gone to work.

The overnight four berth sleeper carriage was comfortable and clean but the journey north was quite rough and bumpy and took two and a half hours longer than planned (11 hours in total).

We had arranged with the hotel the night before for someone to come to the train station with us to make sure we got on the right train.
