on a train to shanghai
After a 13 hour flight, I finally got to Beijing last week.
Three days after I arrived, I hopped on a train to Shanghai with my mom and brother. The train ride is almost as long as my flight back, but we got to lay down and sleep overnight.
I love riding the train; it's such a pleasant experience to watch the things pass by me.
By the time I woke up the next morning, I knew we were pretty close to Shanghai already, because of the endless rice fields, streams, and waterways passed by. You don't see them very often in the north.
I wasn't sure which towns exactly we traveled by, but these places look so peaceful under the fog and morning sun.
