That's why monorail is used in Chongqing: mountainous topography.

That's a lot of hot pink, Pepto Bismol pink, pink everywhere.

This train is giving me the whole Hello Kitty vibe. I think that's a fetish in some parts of the world, maybe even in Chongqing.

At first I thought the hot pink was a cool feature of this line, but the more I look at it, the more it hurts my eyes. I feel myself trying to look away from everything pink. I wonder if riders will have the same feeling.
