Il treno è verde, con un cartello in caratteri cirillici e cinesi che riporta los angeles città di partenza, Mosca, e quella di arrivo, Pechino. In mezzo, c'è un mondo selvaggio, quelle regioni estreme raccontate da esploratori e pionieri, territori vasti ed enigmatici, sul filo del sogno. Il treno è un ponte lunghissimo che attraversa l. a. taiga siberiana, le steppe mongole, il deserto del Gobi, superando il remoto confine tra le regioni di Gengis Khan e il paese più popoloso del mondo, l. a. Cina. Passando da una civiltà pressoché immutata nei secoli a una dimensione avveniristica e tecnologica. Il treno è una casa in movimento, che ospita passeggeri stravaganti e ombre del passato. Mauro Buffa ci racconta questo insolito viaggio in treno (più l. a. digressione in Mongolia, sceso dal convoglio) in cui ha incontrato russi put up sovietici, babuske infreddolite, pastori nomadi maestri dell'essenzialità; ha brindato con l. a. vodka insieme agli occasionali compagni di scompartimento, ha trovato ospitalità nelle gher, mangiando carne di montone e bevendo tè salato, lasciandosi incantare dagli spazi infiniti ancora non contaminati dall'uomo.
