BBC From Our Own Correspondent

I’ve listened to this program all my life – from the radio when I was a child in England to the internet today. Along with Alastair Cooke’s “Letter from America” FOOC encouraged my urge to travel and interest in things outside my immediate experience.

This short talk is about traveling by railway in Eastern Europe. Some of it is reminiscent of rail travel here in Thailand. But the correspondent who wrote:

… but there is no rushing a good train ride.

I think he hasn’t been on a Thai train recently! They’re famous for their slow progress.
