In 2006, Paul Theroux retraces his 1973 Great Railway Bazaar¬†journey across Asia by rail, traveling from London to Japan and back.

My favorite part has to be Theroux visiting a porno shop in Tokyo with Haruki Murakami. COME ON, how awesome/crazy weird is that?

"The train can reassure you in awful places— a far cry from the anxious sweats of doom airplanes inspire, or the nauseating gas-sickness of the long-distance bus, or the paralysis that afflicts the car passenger.¬† If a train is large and comfortable you don’t even need a destination; a corner seat is enough, and you can be one of those travelers who stay in motion, straddling the tracks, and never arrive or feel they ought to"

I think I’m going to like The Great Railway Bazaar.
