Beijing Station


Never been anywhere so busy. Where are they all going!!


I’d read online that there’d be a booth with an English speaking sign but could not see it..asked the people in the booth at the entrance who wrote on a piece of paper ’15 16′. No one at 15 so joined the queue at 16 to try get my overnight train to Shanghai.


Some of the outfits are very interesting here! Looks like a clown! I wasn’t sure if the woman at booth 16 was speaking English or Chinese but she offered me the only option. A seat on the 16:00. ‘No sleeper? When is sleeper???’ She looked again and I got the 19:34 tomorrow night in soft sleeper..which is similar to what I had on the Russian train. I did it!!


Hope it stops raining tomorrow so I can get to the wall!
