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.

Some day when the system really gets going… maybe they have plans to expand the platforms…) I simply got off my train, in the middle of the platform and she appeared a few minutes later. So, we chatted and got on the next train going downtown, and once on the ...
