Waiting on a platform, surrounded by people, I heard them before I saw them.

On my face I could feel the wind of the approaching train and my excitement grew about my adventure. I was so thrilled, my wheelchair shook which made people look and smile. I had been saving for this trip for ages and could hardly believe I was here.

The train rushed quietly into the station and stopped at the platform. We were pushed along with the crowd into the train, the doors closed and we were off to Mt Fuji at the speed of a bullet.
