April 30th - Going to Beijing!

We took the overnight train to Beijing on April 30th. We had "hard sleepers" which means each room had six beds stacked three high. They were comfortable. It was fun! In our room, everyone was very friendly. There was a mother with her 3 year old boy, a man and his 12 year old daughter and a pot-bellied older man. The 3 year old was full of energy. He ran around the train most of the time and managed to hit Rob really hard in the face with a toy. It was fun playing with him, though we learned really quickly not to give him any sugar. The 12 year old girl was very smart and knew quite a bit of English. Rob could tell she wanted to talk to him, but was quite shy.

In this picture, I'm explaining to this kid how to use a moist towelette. He really needed to clean his hands!
