Perils of Commuting

I have always complained about the perils of commuting in the Northeast sector of the United States–the buses, trains, roads–yes, the roads in particular are terribly congested and polluted with aggressive drivers. However, a recent visit to India completely changed my attitude towards commuting totally (much about that in another post). Traffic and public transportation in major Indian cities is packed to the hilt during rush hour and it is chaotic and unorganized. I received a link on commuting by train in Japan. These set of videos give a new meaning to phrases such as, “packed like Sardines,” “Human Trafficking,” and “Tight Squeeze,” “Human Wave”…watch and enjoy.
