From Beijing to North Korea – Another World

Ryan C. Haynes - North KoreaWaking to a busy, lively train while cramped in the top bunk of a sleeper is not most people’s idea of enjoyment and excitement but for me it is one of those days in the year that put a smile on my sleep. I had managed to survive the night without rolling off the bunk, kept myself warm from the onslaughts of air con blasts from the roof of my berth (thanks to my Vietnamese silk sleeping bag), and had manoeuvred my way up and down the three bunks twice during the course of the night without disturbing anyone, in pitch darkness on a moving wagon!

As you can tell I was mighty pleased with myself! The top bunk is not many people’s choice but it certainly means people won’t disturb you. I then sit up – bang! I hit my forehead square on the train roof! Good morning! Half crunch and that’s the space in my bunk compromised.

Then I need to manoeuvre out of the bunk, changing clothes and packing while the body is still waking up and muscles aren’t quite stretched. It makes me wonder how I did this during the course of the night. Especially during my mid-sleep pee break!
