TRAIN for everybody or only woman.
Arriving at the train station, although it was dark already, my eyes opened up again. My God, how busy can it be at a station.
Although the line was long, we got our tickets in just a few minutes. No problem there so in no time we were on our way to the platform.
Was I tired, not paying attention or what. Listen to this.
When walking towards the platform there was a huge line on the left-hand side. So, being Dutch and not wanting to wait that long we followed the other crowd to the right. At least that line was moving fast.
When we finally got into the train and we were on our way to our destination station, I suddenly noticed something. Being a little taller than most Philippinas it was easy to oversee the train cabin and I asked.. Where are all the guys we were in line with? Hahaha it was only right there and then that we realized that we were standing in a woman only carriage. Seriously, I had no idea and only when in it already, I noticed. I have to say… the Philippinos are very friendly and polite. Even when we made some stops at the stations in-between the 1st and our destination, even when the men who worked at the station as a guide or station guard, nobody told me to leave the carriage. Not one person, male or female. No one at the stations. Either they were polite or thinking that this crazy tourist didn’t know any better.
I like to think the first, that they were all too polite to tell me off.
