... bees to honey. Kids were getting squashed, old ladies were being pushed over, it was everyone for themselves - it was history of the Trans-Siberian Train station stop repeating itself again. It was brutal! We too got caught in the moment and joined in to get that precious seat. Nobody wanted to spend two hours on a bus to Beijing stood up, or worse - being left at the wall.
