... hour train to Shanhaiguan. First class as well, because it was only 10 kuai (1) extra! Not much to see on the journey unfortunately, a few little villages/shacks and lots of farmland.

Number 9 is an important number in ancient China, so we went up a series of flights of stairs each with 9 steps. At the top the platform consisted of 9 circles, with the inner most centre consisting of a single stone, the second circle made of 9 ...

As traffic began to build around us, our bus driver told us that we would probably have to walk the rest of the way to the hotel.
