Wabash Cannonball

I am continually amazed at how good they are at moving people around in Japan--buses, taxis, trains. This is the Narita Express train from downtown Tokyo to the airport.

This and the bullet train I took to Kyoto last time here make me feel like the finest train ride in the U.S. should involve a hobo stick over my shoulder.

Yet U.S. politicians routinely block any train projects. Go figure.
