Nomadic Gatherings: Chapter Six: Northern Capitals - Wake, Eat, Sleep.

Travel Writers - Writing About Travel

Not only did the three men in my compartment not speak to each other, they woke, ate breakfast, and by nine o'clock were all asleep again.

I went out into the corridor. Only two of the eight doors were open.

The Swiss men finished their cigarettes, and closed one of the doors to join a Jamaican wife and daughter.

A fat man sat in the corridor with his hands in his pockets and faced his compartment. His head rolled gently.

The carriage-attendant walked down the carpet, bumped him awake, and within a minute his head rolled again.

Outside, the last of the crops were gathered and the fields prepared for winter.

A bullock and some goats looked for somewhere to graze, while a nearby donkey was harnessed to a cart.

Three children played among the chickens.
