Back to the hotel to download the day's so so pix. Got room wifi which was nice. The room is cool at 18C. Blog up to date and bed at the ungodly time of 2130.

After the rest of our group arrived there was a line for that one stall! We don't think we'll be able ...

We navigated our way to the main train station fairly easily and booked our overnight sleeper train for the 4th to Pingyao, again, the ticket office spoke English so this was relatively easy. Although they were out of soft sleepers so are left with hard instead! Can't wait to see what that's like!! We then took the subway to Tian'anmen Square ...
