Inside a jam-packed metro train, there are other interesting sights other than the passing scenes outside the window. One remarkable thing is seeing passengers huddling together and at the same time keeping personal spaces sacred.

The motorcycle rickshaw, locally called tricycle, has taken many forms and designs depending on where it plies. See the frontmost seat where passengers could have been slapped by the cold breeze first-hand? This one services the inhabitants of the vast sugarcane plantations in La Carlota.

They come and go: north-bound and south-bound metro trains meet while in transit. There is an urban legend I heard from the film Kiseki (2011) that the intense energy created by two trains passing by each other can grant the wishes of someone witnessing it. It is only possible for fast-travelling trains, the likes of a shinkansen, though.
