Beware: Fast Moving Trains
The subway system in Hong Kong is excellent. I heard a rumor that it was rated #2 in the world. For popular stops, trains come every 2-3 minutes, so you never have to wait long for a train. Yesterday, we were heading home after some shopping, and as we were going down the stairs to the train platform, Erik yells, "Hurry up the train is here!" So we both run down the stairs to catch the train, but Erik is going faster than me. When I hit the platform, I see Erik is inside the train and the doors are closing. We both gave each other a puzzled look as he sped away, and I stood there in the station. Just as I was cursing him under my breath, I look up and realize he jumped on the wrong train! I got on the correct train and beat him to our stop.
