Train from Shanghai.

I’m on a train back from Shanghai and the CDMA connection keeps going in and out, so I’m not sure if I’ll be able to post this or not. The other two people in my four-person compartment are asleep, and the light from my dimmed (to keep the battery going) computer display is all that’s lighting up the compartment.

We’re taking the same train that we took down to Shanghai. The only difference is that on the way down they gave us free dinner and a travel toothbrush. It’s a “soft-sleeper”, which means that there are four people in a compartment with a door, whereas a “hard-sleeper” would be six people without a door. The beds are all hard.

I’m worried that my typing is too loud for my traveling companions to sleep.

  5. John,
    I just recently found your blog and how interesting and informative that it is. This one in particular brought back memories of my trip to China in 2005 and the (narrow) overnight train ride to Shanghai in a “soft sleeper” cabin. It’s too bad that we missed out on seeing each other then. On that particular trip, I visited Beijing, Hangzhou, Shanghai and Zhangzhou. Those are memories and a moment in time that I will always hold dear as with all of my travels. I look forward to continued reading of your quests.
