You take in the moment when you’re all alone with the elements surrounded by centuries old stones that speaks to you of history of war and triumph of a nation. The conqueror Genghis Khan was not able to penetrate the lands of China and therefore accepted defeat only to wreck havoc in other parts of the region

How nice it is to be in the midst of succulent red grapes post harvest … ripened after all the others are already in the press being drained of their juices for the next batch of wine that will remain trapped in the cold walls of the cave until they are ready to see the sun when it’s time.

The workers are out to get to their work day in – day out riding along this train that brings them to the boundaries where they are allowed and the rest of the way are done on foot. Their lives are like the train, silently moving about underground not knowing until when it will keep on going because there is no opportunity to explore outside their boundaries that will decide the fate of their lives
