9780143566526: The Great Railway Bazaar (Popular Penguins)

The Orient Express, the Golden Arrow of Kuala and the Trans-Siberian Express are just some of the trains steaming through Paul Theroux's epic rail journey from London across Europe through India and Asia. This was a journey of discovery made in the mid-seventies, a time before the West had embraced the places, people, food, faiths and cultures of the East. To visit the lands of "The Great Railway Bazaar" is an encounter with all that is truly foreign and exotic.
