Leaving for Guilin

Train travel used to have so much appeal back in the days. It was part of the vacation, not just a mean of transportation. So, I’ve opted to take the train to Guilin. It’s a 13-hour red-eye train, departing Shenzhen at 6, and arriving at Guilin at 7. Except, this was definitely white-eye for me since my time zone is completely off. To reduce the chance of my getting robbed or killed, I bought a soft sleeper ticket. Instead of a seat out in the open, I get a nice and soft bunk bed in a room with three other people. It’s pretty much the first-class equivalent of airplanes. When I found my bunk, I was slightly disappointed. I remember the rooms to be much more spacious, but I guess it might have been because I was just little. Perspectives matter. I’m typing this up on my bed after everyone in my room has fallen (deeply) asleep. I must not be spotted in the wild with a Macbook Pro and a DSLR, or I’m going to be in lots of trouble.
