YANGON CENTRAL: JOURNEY START, JOURNEY END

Paragraph 1: We arrived Nairobi railway station early, as advised by our tour operator and found a fenced off bar on platform 1. I can't say much for the food selection but we quickly settled down with an ice cold Tusker.  The station was noisy, bursting with commuters all heading home on one of the occasional, dilapidated local train carriages after a long day at work. The station platform had a strange familiar and welcoming feel. It was like stepping back in time to the days of British Rail with antique like memorabilia still in everyday use.
