    ... homework and watch movies (on my computer). Anything to make the time go quickly. About half way into the 7 hours and 33 minutes, a man climbed down from the top bunk. As it turned out he spoke English (or as he joked, Chinglish). We had a great conversation. He is a high school English teacher and the first Chinese person that we really talked to at length. There were many other curious passengers intently listening to ...
