On a highway leading to Beijing: <a class="postlink" href="http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100824/ap_on_re_as/as_china_traffic_jam" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100824/ap_ ... raffic_jam</a> Quote from the news article: "The state-run newspaper said the jam between Beijing and Jining city had given birth to a mini-economy with local merchants capitalising on the stranded drivers' predicament by selling them water and food at inflated prices." Focus: What was the worst traffic jam you have been stuck in? How did you pass the time? I am not sure how long the average person was stuck in this particular jam, but I am assuming many were stuck for at least a night, maybe even a few. How do you keep yourself from not going crazy during this time?? By the way, I'll be sticking to the Trains to get to Beijing.
