When you're having a bad day...

...look at these photos, and say to yourself, "At least I don't have to sleep on the floor of the Beijing West Train Station tonight." I took these photos recently after a late night train back to Beijing.

These are, for the most part, homeless folks in Beijing that have to resort to camping out on the floor of the train station each night. They could very well return to their home cities and get looked after by the government, but they're in Beijing trying to scrape together more cash than they would otherwise be able to.

And no, they're not tourists hoping for an early start on the morning train. Take a close look.
