Great if you like a trip through the slums with piles of rubbish, accompanied by vomiting children, arguing families and drunkards, all in the stinking heat.

I now take the train home frome work almost everyday. I like the slowness and that I am normally the only westerner. However for tourist who are 'fresh from the plane' it might be a challenge better take it on a Saturday or Sunday morning

I was glad to have done this. Nice to sit and watch the countryside go by, people coming and going, and see the communities alongside the tracks.
