Where was a 21-year-old Englishman who thought it would be great to feel the freedom of travelling through remote areas of China.

He decided to randomly hop on buses without having any idea about where they were going.
One day while on a bus, he noticed the other passengers looking at him strangely and found it odd that they stood instead of choosing to sit down next to him.

Then a beautiful Chinese girl boarded the bus and sat down beside him. The woman asked him, “Do you know where you are going?”

“I have no idea,” replied the man with a smile, “I’m just backpacking around the country. I got on this bus without looking at the destination.”

“Well I must warn you that you are in danger. The next stop is the end of the line,” said the woman. “It is a small village that has a reputation. The people who live there eat Western tourists who become lost. They are cannibals.”

The man couldn’t believe what she was saying. At first, he thought she must be joking. “Surely you can’t be serious,” he said.

“Look around,” she said, “all of the passengers on this bus are from that village.”

The young man realised that all of the other passengers were staring at him hungrily and licking their lips. He was frightened.

Just then, he felt the bus begin to slow down as it ascended a steep mountain road.
“This is our chance,” she said, “let’s go.”

They ran down the aisle and jumped out of an emergency exit. They escaped into the mountains as the angry yells of the passengers echoed behind them. As the man caught his breath, he heard the woman laughing to herself.

“Now I can eat alone.”
