American's have this archetype of the Asian student: dedicated to learning, impeccably well behaved, silent and studious. This does not apply to Thai students. Thai students hate to study or learn, they’re constantly loud, and rambunctious at best. It will initially appear as thought I’m just criticizing Thai students and the Thai education system, but that isn’t the case. Okay, maybe it’s a little the case, but bear with me until ...
... along at a very slow speed to reduce movement, this train was travelling along at 70 km/h! We were being thrown all over the place, and we only slept in roughly 20 minute intervals.

We had read about this, so just walked away and then one of the men came running after us and we got a cheaper fare!
