For those of you who haven’t heard,
And in keeping with the theme, I thought I would share a story or two about the adventure one can have traveling within China during this festive week.
It started out innocently enough. Yang, my Taichi teacher, asked how long my flight back to
The first time he left
The discussion then went into safety of the trains and buses in
Guanxi, which is common practice here in
He also told me of a story about 3 years ago, where the train was so crammed during this time, they found 7 people in the toilet, as there was no place else left on the train to stand. Apparently, if you needed to relieve yourself, you used the windows.
The buses are no better. Typically, the buses will call out to people who weren’t fortunate enough to get a train ticket, and then cram as many as 100 people on them.
Yea, I think I will stick to airplanes…
