Travel Blogs from Changsha
The road to Changsha traversed some impressive country - lots of mountains, a few rivers and trees. We spent most of the day on relatively new freeways. There were few cars on the freeways however, so we could only assume that they were too expensive for the locals. Roadhouses along the way were also fairly new and clearly showed that the volume of traffic is expected to increase in the future. In one roadhouse, I've never seen so many toilets ...

Vennie later told me that the police have been cracking down on cars using the bus lane and ...
I'm glad Changsha has a subway system now, and there are many good things one can say about it. Like every person I dealt with who works for the system was friendly and helpful. But, when I got off the CHR, all I saw were exit signs. I spent several minutes wandering, looking for the subway. It is possible they had a subway symbol on signs, but if so, they look so much like any other train symbol. Maybe that’s why so many subway systems get called ...
