Took this shot a while ago while I was pinned up against the driver’s seat and the post behind it.
I’m not sure how many people it is physically possible to cram onto a bus in China–but the people you see in this picture were already on the bus when the driver opened the door at the next stop to let MORE on the bus . . . the door was unable to close the first time he tried to close it after one more person squeezed on . . . wow.
I can only imagine what this must be like to experience during the full heat and humidity of the summer in Changsha!
I’ll never know because I now time my bus trips to be after 9am and leaving to go back to my apartment before 3 or 4pm if possible . . . because if it’s earlier or later than those times I’m likely to experience the situation in this picture.
