Here is why I like riding on trains: On trains, you see strange people. You experience strange things. You pass by strange places. You have tickets disappearing into strange corners of your knapsack. You'll want to make strange choo choo noises into your window. And strangers will think you're pretty strange for doing so. Train rides are perfect for strangeness to roam free. Where you'll look in the window, and a stranger is all you see.
