Going home by car is not part of the reality of most people in countries such as Thailand or Vietnam. Airplane not even try. Every day, night trains are filled with workers, students, parents, children and adults, nomads that geography pushed away and that rails find the strength to join. The first class, the comfort of the beds and air conditioning, is next door, as far as the kilometers. And the sleeps pile on delays, in the deep night, in the smells that take place, in bodies that unmold themselves. An endless journey, daily, that takes hours to life and that is the life of many.
