Travel Blogs from Nanchang
We woke up early in the morning in order to drive out to the ancient villages of Anyi county. By doing this, we missed the crowds and also, I caught my train home right on time.
This is an area of the province where they grow rapeseed plants, same as in Saskatchewan. Leona was surprised that I had seen them before. Lots of people would stop on the side of the road and take pictures in the fields.
I got to Nanchang at around 11:30 p.m. on Friday night. I got to take the fast train this time! It only took three hours. I didn't think Leona would pick me up so late at night, but she did and even brought me a red bean pie from KFC when she met me at the station.
Her house is way out in the suburbs and her husband actually drove us all the way there.
In the morning we went downtown and saw People's Square with her husband. He had to ...

The next day I headed to the ticket window in the city, said more harsh words and grabbed a tuk tuk to the train station and actually invented some rather new harsh words before joining one of the lines. After waiting for over an hour ...
... the service stopped for the night.
We had no plans to do anything here except catch a bus; the problem is that our bus to-day doesn't leave until 3:40pm, so we just wandered a bit. Nanchang is by no means a lovely city, but there are few cities in the world that are. It's certainly not worth the disdain it received from others when I told them I was coming here.
... the Nanchang train station. Women stood on the sidewalk holding advertisements for rooms. In the pictures the rooms looked clean, but they were not; the rooms in those places are worn and greasy with the juices and oils of a thousand travelers who eat and spit and do other things above the wet and littered streets.
