Trip Log

Notes Actions
A long day on the train today, starting with the Claustrophobic Chaos Car from Geneve to Paris. We were at the very end of the train, in a separate little compartment with seating enough for 16. There were 16 of us in the compartment, which doesn't sound too bad until you take into account that it included a man with his entourage of three women and three small children, each with a suitcase big enough for Brent and I to live in, plus a group of six Oriental Amazon people who were all legs, sniffles and electronics. It was a bad B-Movie scene.
