Well firstly you need to understand that I am one of the only people who work for flight centre that do not drink. On this ocassion the train had run out of anything that was not alcoholic (or so my friends told me each time went to drinks carriage!) and could only provide me with beer to drink. As this was a very long overnight service I seemed to progressively tipsy. The locals were very encouraging, wanting to hear more Australian slag phrases and what is life like in Australia. We ended up having a wonderfuly "Carriage" party with everyone, dancing to local music and telling jokes For my final act I tried to poll dance on the ladder that lead to the higher bunk to much amusement of a lovely elderly Thai gentleman who requested my name and number for his son that was looking for a wife! I was offered some cows, a large rice field and a guarantee that his son would be excited to have me as his wife. I still to this very day keep in contact and send gifts to the friends I made on that journey.
