Crazy Day at the Metro

Beth and I got up this morning to meet some friends. We had to meet up at 9:30, but because of the morning rush hour we tried to get to the metro by 8:30 a.m.

Once we got to the metro, everything seemed relatively normal.  Things weren't too busy, but the train itself was completely full and oddly was not moving.  The doors remained open for about five minutes before closing and taking off.

The next train to come a few minutes later was once again completely full, but instead of it stopping, letting people in (if anyone could possibly fit), and taking off again, the people on the train were told to get off, and then the train moved backwards.  The same thing happened to the next train that was again completely full.

So eventually the metro was completely full.  Beth and I of course had given up by this point but I managed to snap a picture or two before walking out.

It was like nothing I had seen before.  Granted, rush hour is typically busy, and trains are usually packed like this metro was during those busy times.  But I've never seen a station quite like this!
