Riding the Rails in Bangladesh
Akash’s photo gallery of Bangladeshis riding atop freight trains: “Due to Bangladesh’s large population, inadequate seats on the trains and poverty, it is quite common to see a thick layer of people occupying the roof of a train. Frequent accidents, which occur when a free rider slips, are not enough to deter these stowaways of the railway.” Amazing shots. Via Gadling.
