... simply no other options if we wanted to go to Datong. Even Sam was a bit in shock. "You pee right onto the tracks". In these hard sleepers, the beds are stacked three high.

Mary and I did a good bit of walking around and exploring; the city is quite large, and the tourist spots are a little difficult to get to because they're kinda far from our hostel.
